$925,000 Practical Joke Colt Purchased by Speedway

A big week for Coolmore sires at the OBS March Two-Year-Olds In Training Sale continued on Wednesday when Practical Joke saw Speedway Stables go to $925,000 to secure one of his colts.

Consigned by Wavertree Stables, the colt is out of a half-sister to stakes winner and Grade I placed Givemeaminit and stakes performers Star Celebrity and Real Dingo. His dam Louisiana Voodoo is a placed runner and the dam of two other foals.

Bred by Farm d’Allie Racing Stable, this colt was also purchased for $220,000 at the 2021 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale by Cypress Creek from Four Star Sales.

Practical Joke is also the sire of a $270,000 half-sister to stakes winners Princess Arabella and Dyna’s Lassie and a $250,000 filly out of a granddaughter of Horse of the Year Azeri.

On the track, Practical Joke leads all third crop sires in 2023 by winners (36), stakes winners (four), and graded stakes winners (three).
