Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Into Mischief

A grade one-winning two-year-old from the Storm Cat line, Into Mischief has developed into one of North America’s most exciting young sires.

Into Mischief has sired the brilliant duo Goldencents and Practical Joke out of mares by Banker’s Gold and Distorted Humor, sons of Forty Niner. From other branches of the Mr. Prospector line, Into Mischief has already sired graded stakes winners out of mares by SpeightstownGrand Slam, and a stakes winner out of a mare by Proud Citizen (all by Gone West); a stakes winner out of a mare by Candy Ride; a stakes winner from a mare by Mutakddim (by Seeking the Gold); and graded stakes winners out of mares by Victory Gallop 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 Unbridled and Unbridled’s Song (broodmare sire of an Into Mischief stakes winner), Empire MakerCarson City (broodmare sire of an Into Mischief stakes winner) and Thunder Gulch.

Into Mischief’s millionaire Vyjack is out of a mare by Stravinsky, a son of Nureyev. Into Mischief also has graded stakes winner Can The Man out of a mare by Danzig. Other branches of Northern Dancer to produce stakes winners for Harlan’s Holiday include Deputy Minster, Nijinsky 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, by Northern Dancer’s three-quarters relative Icecapade.

Harlan’s Holiday 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 out of mares from the Roberto and Halo branches.

Harlan’s Holiday has also found success with mares from the Blushing Groom line, siring Champion Shanghai Bobby from a daughter of Orientate (by Mt. Livermore), and a grade one winner out of a mare by Candy Stripes.
