Into Mischief sales topper wins Del Mar debut with class

Into Mischief

Saturday, August 17, 2013
Can the Man, the only horse to bring more than $300,000 at the Barretts May 2-year-olds in Training sale this year, proved best in his debut Saturday at Del Mar, pulling clear in the stretch en route to a 1 1/2-length score.

Trained by Bob Baffert, who bought bay son of Into Mischief for $320,000 for owner Kaleem Shah at Barretts, Can the Man's win pushed Into Mischief's progeny earnings past the $200,000 mark, putting him in the sixth spot on the North American Second Crop sire list.

Can the Man assumed the lead at the head of the lane after dueling through early opening fractions, then holding his foes at bay to stop the clock in an excellent 1:03.82 for the 5 1/2-furlongs.

Can the Man was bred in Kentucky by Malibu Farm and is a half-brother to two-times stakes winner Martha's Moon. Their dam Smolensk is a half-sister to Grade 2 Demoiselle winner Better Than Honour, who is probably best know for producing Belmont S. (G1) winners Jazil and Rags to Riches.
