“By winning the 7F G1 H. Allen Jerkens Stakes at Saratoga, Practical Joke became one of the most attractive stallion prospects from the 3-year-old crop. Attractive is a key word because he’s an outstanding looker to begin with.” Sid Fernando

"That combination of speed, precocity, toughness, and versatility makes Practical Joke an alluring stallion prospect, and that allure is further increased by the fact that he is a son of the rapidly rising Into Mischief." Alan Porter, Bloodhorse Daily

"I have had a lot of success with Into Mischief and from what I have seen so far I really like the Practical Joke's... they are all great-bodied, athletic, strong individuals, all the attributes that would make you hope Practical Joke could follow in the footsteps of his sire." Larry Best
