Into Mischief colt sharp in $100K Speakeasy S.

Into Mischief

Monday, October 14, 2013
Two-year-old Can the Man, in his first start without blinkers, took to the equipment change with zeal to draw away to a length and three-quarter win in the $100,000 Speakeasy S. Monday at Santa Anita Park.

The bay colt is one of six stakes winners by Into Mischief who have accumulated a dozen stakes victories for the top-five Second Crop sire.

Can the Man, who was also cutting back in distance from the 1 1/16-mile Grade 1 FrontRunner S. two weeks ago, looked much the best in the six furlong Speakeasy. Martin Garcia had his mount right on the pace, then took over at the top of the stretch to clear off from his competition.

“(Trainer Bob Baffert) took the blinkers off today, which I think helped. I think it will be good for him to run without them,” said Garcia. “He took the lead today and was just waiting, waiting, waiting and was just playing with them. He felt that horse on the inside coming (Agapito Delgadillo on Hi Fashioned) and once they got close he took off again. He was just playing out there today.”

Conditioned by Baffert for Kaleem Shah, Can the Man was the sales topper at the Barretts May sale, where Shah made the winning bid of $320,000. Can the Man is out of the European Group stakes winner Smolensk, who is a half-sister to Grade 2 winner Better Than Honour. Smolensk is also the dam of two-time stakes winner Martha's Moon.
