Multiple G1 Winner Practical Joke To Stand At Ashford Stud In 2018

Impressive Grade 1 H. Allen Jerkens Stakes winner Practical Joke will retire to Coolmore America’s Ashford Stud for the 2018 breeding season. The son of Into Mischief is unbeaten in his five starts around one turn – and in his three starts at Saratoga – and will likely make his next start in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.

Trained by Chad Brown for Seth Klarman’s Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence, Practical Joke won his first three starts as a juvenile including the G1 Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga and the G1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park. This season he also won the G3 Dwyer Stakes and was beaten only a half-length in the G1 Haskell Invitational Stakes.

“He’s a very, very good-looking horse, he’s by one of the hottest sires in the country and he’s amongst the very best racehorses of his generation,” said Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan.

“We’re absolutely delighted that he’s coming to stand here.”
