Into Mischief Colt Romps in 'Rising Star' Performance at the Spa

My Prankster | Sarah Andrew

My Prankster (c, 2, Into Mischief–My Wandy's Girl, Flower Alley) put on a show for trainer Todd Pletcher on the GI Alabama S. undercard at Saratoga Saturday afternoon, easily good enough for 'TDN Rising Star' honors.

My Prankster tipped his hand with a four-furlong gate move in :47 (2/114) two back at Saratoga Aug. 8 and was off at odds of 7-2 in this loaded field. He was ridden from his inside draw by Luis Saez and chased early from third. Guided to the outside, he ranged up three wide heading into the far turn, took control leaving the quarter pole, and, after switching over to his right lead in the stretch, leveled off in jaw-dropping fashion en route to a 10-length score. Seal Beach (Midshipman) was second.

My Prankster, a $600,000 FTKSEL yearling purchase by Robert E. and Lawana L. Low, becomes the 25th of his sire's offspring to be accorded 'Rising Star' status. My Wandy's Girl, a Puerto Rican champion, 15-time winner and heroine of the 2014 Barbara Fritchie H., brought $700,000 from Stonestreet at the 2014 KEENOV sale. She is also responsible for a Curlin colt of 2020. She was bred to Tapit for 2022.

Pletcher and the Lows also campaign MGISW Colonel Liam (Liam's Map).

7th-Saratoga, $100,000, Msw, 8-21, 2yo, 6 1/2f, 1:16.27, ft, 10 lengths.
