Grade I winner Into Mischief has been retired from racing for stallion duty at B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm near Lexington. He is expected to arrive at the farm Jan. 7 and will stand for $12,500.
Three-year-old Into Mischief exited racing with a runner-up effort in the Dec. 26 Malibu Stakes (gr. I) at Santa Anita. “He came out of the race great,” said farm manager Ned Toffey.
Bred in Kentucky by James T. Hines Jr., Into Mischief finished first or second in all six races, five of which were stakes, and earned $597,080 for Hughes. His big win came in the 2007 CashCall Futurity (gr. I) over Colonel John at Hollywood Park.
Into Mischief, who won the Damascus Stakes at Oak Tree at Santa Anita in November, is by Harlan’s Holiday out of the stakes-winning Tricky Creek mare Leslie’s Lady.
