Practical Joke Wins Gr1 H Allen Jerkens Stakes
At Saratoga racecourse in the US, 3YO bay colt Practical Joke (Into Mischief-Halo Humor, by Distorted Humor) registered the third Gr1 victory of his career when bounding to a 1.25 length win for trainer Chad Brown in the US$500,000 Gr1 H Allen Jerkens Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YOs, defeating Takaful & American Anthem. Practical Joke, who is likely to be aimed at the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr1 Hopeful Stakes & Gr1 Champagne Stakes) and 4 placings from 10 starts for US$1,670,800 in earnings.
