Alan Porter’s 2020 Breeding Analysis for Into Mischief

Leading Sire of 2019, multiple Leading Sire of Two-Year-Olds and now a sire of sires, Into Mischief is one of North America’s most important stallions.

Into Mischief has sired two outstanding sprinter/milers – Goldencents and Practical Joke – out of mares by Banker’s Gold and Distorted Humor, both sons of Forty Niner, a stallion who could also be brought in through such as Coronado’s Quest, Editor’s Note, End Sweep, Jules, Luhuk, Gold Fever, Roar (broodmare of an Into Mischief stakes winner), Trippi (broodmare sire of Into Mischief graded winner Miss Sunset) and Twining. He has also been exceptional with the Gone West branch of Mr. Prospector. On that cross Into Mischief has three graded winners, including grade one winner Mia Mischief, out of mares by Speightstown (sire of Munnings); graded winner Authentic out of a mare by Mr. Greeley; graded winners out of mares by Grand Slam and his son, Limehouse; and stakes winners out of mares by Elusive Quality (an interesting cross here, and sire of Quality Road) and Proud Citizen.

The cross of Into Mischief with mares from the Fappiano branch of Mr. Prospector has been an extremely productive one. Champion Covfefe is out of a mare by Unbridled. From mares by Unbridled’s Song, Into Mischief has three stakes winners, and from a mare by that horse’s son, Songandaprayer, he sired graded winner Maximus Mischief. He also has stakes winner Taraz out of a mare by Unbridled son, Empire Maker (sire of Pioneerof the Nile and Bodemeister) and Unbridled might also be introduced through Broken Vow and Grindstone and his son Birdstone. From the Cryptoclearance branch, Into Mischief has graded winner Conquest Enforcer out of a mare by Victory Gallop, and two stakes winners out of mares by Candy Ride.

Into Mischief has graded winner Golden Mischief out of a mare by Mr. Prospector son, Carson City, and graded winner Gas Station Sushi out of a mare by Carson City son Five Star Day, which also suggests daughters of City Zip, Pollard’s Vision or Cuvee. Into Mischief has already sired stakes winner Sittin at the Bar out of a mare by Mutakddim (by Seeking the Gold, also sire of Petionville and Cape Town), and graded stakes winner Miss Mischief out of a mare by Lemon Drop Kid (by Kingmambo). Overall, almost any strain of Mr. Prospector might prove positive here, but we can note that Into Mischief also has a graded winner out of a mare by Line in the Sand, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Pulling Punches (by Two Punch, also sire of Smoke Glacken).

Looking at the Northern Dancer line, the cross with Danzig line mares has an excellent strike-rate. This includes graded winner Can The Man out of a mare by Danzig himself, and graded winner Instagrand out of a mare by Lawyer Ron (by Langfuhr), and stakes winners out of mares by Lil’s Lad and Polish Numbers. There are numerous other sources of Danzig that would appeal here, including Belong to Me (who looks particularly interesting), Hard Spun, War Front and Exchange Rate.

Into Mischief’s graded stakes winner Vyjack is out of a mare by Stravinsky, a son of the Northern Dancer horse, Nureyev. Other sources of Nureyev include Fasliyev, Spinning World, Theatrical and Atticus. Into Mischief has a stakes winner out of a mare by Mr. Purple, and Harlan’s Holiday is sire of group winner My Special J’s out of a mare by that horse’s sire, Deputy Minster (who can also be brought in through Silver Deputy, Awesome Again, Touch Gold, Deputy Commander, Salt Lake, Dehere, French Deputy, Forest Camp, Ghostzapper, Posse and Badge of Silver).

Into Mischief’s talented son, Vicar’s In Trouble, is out of a mare by Vicar, a son of Wild Again, and there is also a Harlan’s Holiday stakes winner out of a mare by Vicar and another out of a mare by Wild Again, suggesting a very strong affinity. This strain could also be brought in through Wild Rush, Offlee Wild, Milwaukee Brew and Whiskey Wisdom. There is also an Into Mischief stakes winner out of a mare by Mazel Trick, by Phone Trick, from the Clever Trick branch of Wild Again’s sire, Icecapade.

Looking at mares from the A.P. Indy line we can note three stakes winners, including out of the similarly-bred Bernardini (sire of Stay Thirsty and To Honor and Serve) and Tapit (sire of Tapizar and Trappe Shot).

Into Mischief is sire of stakes winner Mischievous Mama out of a mare by Afternoon Deelites, by Private Terms, a son of Private Account (who is available through Corporate Report, Personal Flag, Unaccounted For, Secret Hello and Valley Crossing). Private Account is by Damascus, and from the Timeless Moment branch of that line Into Mischief is sire of grade one winner Audible out of a mare by Gilded Time.

From the Relaunch line, Into Mischief has a graded winner out of a mare by Tiznow, and a son of Into Mischief is sire of multiple graded winner Mr. Money out of a mare by Tiznow (sire of Tiz Wonderful, Colonel John – a brother to the dam of Into Mischief graded winner Comical – and Tizway) and Into Mischief has a stakes winner out of a mare by Honour and Glory (sire of Put It Back).

Into Mischief and his sire, Harlan’s Holiday, have enjoyed success with some branches of Blushing Groom. Into Mischief sired graded winner One Liner out of a mare by Cherokee Run (sire of Yonaguska and Kafwain), and Harlan’s Holiday has Champion Shanghai Bobby out of a mare by Orientate (by Mt. Livermore, also sire of Housebuster and Peaks and Valleys), a grade one winner out of a mare by Candy Stripes, and a graded winner out of a Rahy mare.

Into Mischief has a grade one performer out of a mare by Indian Charlie (sire of Uncle Mo), and two sons of Into Mischief have stakes winners on the same cross.
