    • Sharp Colt Fits Steve Asmussen Like a Glove

    • Sire Practical Joke Has a Top 2yo From First Crop

    • WPT Multiple Graded Stakes Winner Came From Same Family

Steve Asmussen just finished an awe-inspiring meet at Saratoga that included four Grade 1 sprint wins, and this colt fits him to a T, oozing speed and athleticism.

An A+ nick, the colt comes from the second crop of Practical Joke, who has already been represented by a sharp Graded stakes winner in Wit, who won the Sanford Stakes (G2) at the Spa and finished second to Asmussen’s Gunite in the Grade 1 Hopeful.

And West Point already has a good vibe with the female side of this colt’s pedigree: it produced WPT’s El Gato Malo, a former star 2 and 3-year-old for the stable, including Graded stakes wins at Santa Anita and Lone Star.

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2023.

Trainer: Steve Asmussen

  • Two-time Eclipse Award winner for leading trainer and was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 2016.
  • Won 3 Triple Crown races and 5 Breeders’ Cup races. Top horses include Champs Curlin, Rachel Alexandra, Gun Runner, Echo Zulu, Kodiak Kowboy, My Miss Aurelia, Untapable.
  • Broke the All-Time North American win record this summer and won 5 Grade 1 races at Saratoga.

This is a really athletic horse who fell under the radar on the third day of the Keeneland Sale. He’s the perfect fit for Steve, I can clearly envision him all braided up and being in the paddock at Saratoga next summer.
