Practical Joke | Coolmore

4th-CD, $120,000, Msw, 2yo, 5 1/2f, post time: 2:13 p.m. ET
YOU'LL BE BACK (Practical Joke), the second priciest filly by the sire in 2023, is unveiled for Gregory Tramontin by trainer Tom Amoss. A daughter of Advance Party (Empire Maker), the $575,000 KEESEP purchase is a granddaughter of the prolific Helen Alexander – Helen Groves's Aurora, a daughter of the stalwart champion juvenile filly Althea. A full-sister to Japanese champion 2yo filly Yamanin Paradise, Advance Party is a half-sister to UAE Horse of the Year Festival of Light (A.P. Indy), in addition to Grade I winners Acoma (Empire Maker) and Arch (Kris S.). This also represents the family of dual champion Covfefe (Into Mischief). Also marking her debut, Hereforagoodtime (Justify) gets her start for Boardshorts Stables, who purchased the daughter of First Hour (Speightstown) for $400,000 at Keeneland last September. The WinStar Farm-bred filly is trained by Brendan Walsh. Stonestreet Stables homebred Eclatant (Into Mischief) is rolled out by the Brad Cox team. The full-sister to GSW and GISP Mutasaabeq will be accompanied by Florent Geroux.

Appearing on the also eligible list, Live Oak Plantation's and One More Time (Omaha Beach) kicks off for trainer Mark Casse. Bred by William Harrigan and Mike Pietrangelo, the Indian Creek consigned filly realized a $750,000 final bid at Fasig-Tipton's Saratoga sale last summer. The price represented the top price for a filly by the sire last season, while also weighing in as the second-highest price overall by the Spendthrift stallion in 2023. Fresh off a four-furlong move in :46 3/5 at Churchill June 14, the dark bay will be accompanied by Jose Ortiz. TJCIS PPS
