$210,000 Colt Another Top Result for Practical Joke

On a top day at Keeneland’s November Breeding Stock Sale for Coolmore America sires, Practical Joke’s Hip 763 made waves when selling to Waystar Co for $210,000 from Eaton Sales.

The Barronstown Stud-bred colt comes from a proven dam with stakes winning Parisian Affair already producing Giant’s Causeway’s stakes winner Crimson China and the dam of Grade II-placed Belle Laura. In all, Parisian Affair has produced four winners from six to race.

A successful racehorse herself, Parisian Affair is also a half-sister to Grade I winner and sire Elusive City and out of a half-sister to two stakes winners. The family’s strength continues off the page as well with the colt’s third dam the great-granddam of Canadian Champion Lukes Alley and a half-sister to Grade I winner Coup De Fusil.

A brilliant racehorse at two and three with three Grade I victories on his resume, Practical Joke has proven to be a popular sire with buyers throughout the country this Autumn.
