Provocateur To Stand At New York's McMahon Stud

Provocateur | Ryan Thompson

McMahon and Hill Bloodstock purchased Provocateur (Into Mischief) for $200,000 at the 2022 Keeneland November Sale and Mike McMahon raced the 5-year-old four times this year before retiring him to stud at New York's McMahon Stud. A $600,000 yearling purchase, Provocateur won the Hutcheson S. at Gulfstream Park at two and was third in the GI Woody Stephens S. the following year. In a 14-race career, he compiled earnings of $240,000.

“He's a very, very good-looking horse, very correct,” said Joe McMahon. “And of course everyone knows Into Mischief-he's the leading stallion in North America. This is an exciting horse that ran in top company.”

McMahon pointed to the success of Honest Mischief as a reason to expect success for Provocateur.

Honest Mischief is Grade II-placed and got about 127 mares his first year,” he said. “And we think Provocateur's race record is just as strong.”

Provocateur will stand for $5,000.
