Stakes winner Honest Mischief, who started his stud career last month at Sequel Stallions New York in Hudson, has his first mares in foal.

The mares in foal include the winning Exchange Rate mare Tradeable and Caragh Queen, an unraced daughter of Hard Spun and half-sister to Kentucky Derby winner Always Dream, for breeder William J. Butler.

Others are Dobra, a Smoke Glacken mare who won nine races and $202,681 for Ron Lombardi’s Mr. Amore Stables and Delta Delight, a Union Rags half-sister to graded stakes winner and $463,340-earner JJ’s Lucky Train for breeder Allen Poindexter.

“We are happily overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of support that we are getting for our exciting new sire,” said Sequel’s Becky Thomas. “And we are thrilled that the first mares sent by some of our favorite breeders are in foal so early. We hope they get another Firenze Fire and A Freud of Mama to run here in New York.”

Honest Mischief, a 4-year-old son of Into Mischief out of the Grade 1-winning Seattle Slew mare Honest Lady, stands for $6,500 LFSN for a syndicate. Honest Lady is a half sister to classic winner and top sire Empire Maker, along with sires Chester House and Decarchy.

Bred and campaigned by Juddmonte Farms, Honest Mischief won four of nine starts with three seconds and a third for $287,464.
