Into Mischief Beats Tapit as Biggest Season Earner

Racing post tips indicate that, through November 22, the progeny of Into Mischief have earned $19,994,720, based on Daily Racing Form data. Tapit, with Gainesway Farm, had set the previous record in 2016 at $19,907,973. That had been the third straight year in which Tapit had broken the record.

The fact that Into Mischief is so far ahead of the record with a month left in the 2020 campaign makes this year even more impressive. Tapit’s progeny has earned $11,429,760 so far in 2020.


During the weekend of November 20-22; Into Mischief had four different horses from his progeny win races: Gracetown won at Laurel Park in an allowance; Aasr won a maiden special weight race at Churchill Downs. Valletta prevailed in a maiden claiming event at Aqueduct; and Life is Good won his debut by 9 ½ lengths at Del Mar in a maiden special weight.

The top earner for Into Mischief this year, of course, has been Authentic, who brought in over $6.1 million this year all by himself; winning both the Kentucky Derby and the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He brought in more money by winning the Haskell Stakes and finishing second at the Preakness Stakes. Getting three wins brought Authentic an additional $1 million in bonus money that does not count toward Into Mischief’s progeny earnings.

Authentic retired shortly after winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic; and is headed to stud, where he will start building a progeny list of his own. Other horses from his progeny that have won this year including: Gamine (Breeders’ Cup Filly), Dayoutoftheoffice (Frizette Stakes winner, runner-up at Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies) and eight other winners of graded stakes.
