Grade 1 winner Audible, by leading sire Into Mischief, to stand at WinStar Farm
Thursday, October 3, 2019
Audible, Into Mischief’s Florida Derby (G1) winner, has been retired and will enter stud at WinStar Farm for the 2020 breeding season.

One of the most consistent 3-year-olds of his generation, Audible was never off the board in five stakes with three stakes wins in his sophomore season for owners WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Starlight Racing, and Head of Plains Partners and trainer Todd Pletcher.

“He was one of the best in a historic class,” said Elliott Walden,” president, CEO and racing manager of WinStar Farm. “He separates himself from other sons of Into Mischief with his looks and presence.”

In his seasonal and stakes debut at three, following a pair of wins at two, Audible captured the $350,000 Holy Bull S. (G2) at Gulfstream Park in decisive fashion, defeating Grade 1 winner Free Drop Billy by 5 ½ lengths. He powered home as much the best to cover 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.92, the fastest time in the race in the last six years.

Following up his romping Holy Bull win, Audible stamped his ticket to the Kentucky Derby (G1) with another eye-catching performance in the $1,000,000 Florida Derby, rolling to a dominating three-length victory over subsequent multiple Grade 1 winners Catholic Boy and Promises Fulfilled. He demonstrated his versatility in winning the 1 1/8-mile Florida Derby, his fourth consecutive win, rallying from far back after winning the Holy Bull with a pace-stalking trip.

“Audible’s Florida Derby showed the world how talented he was,” said Todd Pletcher. “He has a great disposition and mind with a beautiful physical. He is the best Into Mischief I have seen.”

Audible headed into Churchill Downs on the First Saturday in May ranked third on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Leaderboard with 110 points. After being repeatedly blocked and altering course in the stretch of the Derby, he bravely rallied along the rail and finished a determined third to eventual undefeated Triple Crown winner Justify. Audible returned in November and won the inaugural running of the seven-furlong Cherokee Run Stakes at Churchill Downs by two lengths with a bold five-wide move.

An earner of $2,130,520, Audible retires with five wins from 10 starts.

A $500,000 Fasig-Tipton March sale graduate, Audible was bred by Oak Bluff Stables and hails from a deep female family. The family traces directly to multiple Grade 1 winner and Graded stakes producer Classy Cathy, who won the Alabama S. (G1), Ashland S. (G1), and Gazelle H. (G1) during her outstanding racing career.
