Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Can The Man

A graded and multiple stakes winner who was beaten just a length in the Del Mar Futurity (gr. I), Can The Man is by fast emerging young sire Into Mischief, from the stallion producing Best in Show family.

Into Mischief has sired the brilliant duo Practical Joke and Goldencents out of mares by Distorted Humor and Banker’s Gold, sons of Forty Niner, and he also has a graded winner from a mare by that horse’s grandson, Trippi. From other branches of the Mr. Prospector line, Into Mischief has graded stakes winners from daughters of Speightstown and Grand Slam, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Proud Citizen (both by Gone West), and stakes winners out of mares by Mutakddim (by Seeking the Gold), Carson City and Lemon Drop Kid. We can note that Into Mischief’s sire, Harlan’s Holiday, has also been very good with Mr. Prospector line mares, including through Fappiano sources, UnbridledQuiet American and Candy Ride, as well as Carson City and Thunder GulchMr. Prospector is a son of Raise a Native, and from the Majestic Light branch of that line, Into Mischief has a stakes winner out of a mare by Maria’s Mon (sire of Monarchos) and Harlan’s Holiday has the spectacular grade one winner Majesticperfection out of a daughter of Wavering Monarch.

Into Mischief’s multiple graded stakes winner Vyjack is out of a mare by Stravinsky, and other branches of Northern Dancer to produce stakes winners for Harlan’s Holiday include Deputy MinsterNijinsky II (through Royal Academy), Dixieland Band (sire of Dixie Union) and El Prado.

Into Mischief’s talented son, Vicar’s In Trouble, is out of a mare by Vicar, a son of Wild Again. Harlan’s Holiday already has a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Relaunch, and a stakes winner out of a mare by his son Skywalker, suggesting mares by such as Tiznow and Honour and Glory. From the Hail to Reason line there are Harlan’s Holiday stakes winners from the Roberto and Halo branches.

Can The Man is a half-brother to a multiple stakes winner by Malibu Moon, a son of A.P. Indy from the Seattle Slew line. This suggests mares by stallions bred on the same A.P. Indy/Mr. Prospector cross as Malibu Moon, among them PulpitMineshaft, Congrats and Flatter.
