McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds will host a stallion show and open house from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, December 9. Stallions will be available for inspection and a season drawing will be held for each stallion.

The stallions include newcomer Provocateur, a son of leading sire Into Mischief. Bred in Kentucky by Kingswood Farm and David Egan, Provocateur was a $600,000 Keeneland September yearling.

Winner of a maiden special weight at Tampa Bay Downs by 4 1/2 lengths at 2, Provocateur won Gulfstream Park’s $100,000 Hutcheson Stakes going 6 furlongs in 1:09.60, Monmouth Park’s $104,000 Jersey Shore Stakes in 1:09.81 and finished second in the $125,000 Pasco Stakes and $100,000 Gold Fever Stakes and third in the Grade 1, $400,000 Woody Stephens Stakes.

Provocateur is by the leading sire of the 21st Century Into Mischief, North America’s leading sire from 2019 to 2023, and descends from the sire-producing family of Daredevil, Albertus Maximus, King Charlemagne, Meshaheer and others.

Provocateur will stand for $5,000 live foal. He joins Bucchero, also new to McMahon of Saratoga from Florida. Bucchero will stand for $7,500 live foal.

Leading New York sire Central Banker remains unchanged at $7,500 live foal stands and nurses.

Solomini, the leading first-crop sire standing outside of Kentucky, will stand for $7,500 live foal, and Redesdale remains at $2,500 live foal.
