Courtlandt Farm Goes to Seven Figures for Into Mischief Filly


Hip 275 | Keeneland

A Clearsky Farm-bred and -consigned daughter of leading sire Into Mischief out of the stakes-placed Mary Rita (Distorted Humor) was hammered down for $1.025 million to Don Adam’s Courtlandt Farm to become the first to breach the seven-furlong threshold during the second Book 1 session of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale in Lexington. The Cleary family gave $230,000 for Mary Rita in foal to The Factor at the 2016 Keeneland November sale and her first live foal, a full brother to hip 275, fetched $375,000 as a short yearling at KEEJAN in 2019 before realizing $850,000 from Godolphin when pinhooked into this sale last September. Mary Rita produced a colt by Bolt d’Oro Feb. 24 and was bred back to Into Mischief’s Grade I-winning son Audible. Hip 275 is bred on the same cross responsible for GISW Practical Joke, whose first-crop is being well received at the sales.
