Race Recap!

Lookwhogotlucky showed some real determination today at Lone Star Park to break his maiden for trainer Steve Asmussen. When it looked like our 3-year-old colt, who had the lead in the stretch, was going to be passed, he dug in and gamely held sway for a nose victory as the 4-5 favorite favorite in the field of five.

He was not claimed out of the race.

Ridden by Rodolfo Guerra, Lookwhogotlucky broke well and then settled in the second spot behind pacesetter Russet Moon into the first turn and down the backstretch. He was about one length off Russet Moon through pedestrian early fractions of 24.01 seconds and 48.38 in the one-mile dirt race.

Set down by Guerra leaving the turn, Lookwhogotlucky had the lead at the top of the stretch, but True Dakotan was coming with a nice rally and took the lead briefly in deep stretch, but our colt re-engaged and battled back for the victory.

He returned $3.40 and completed the distance in 1:41.33.

Lookwhogotlucky Race Overview

Lookwhogotlucky is looking to break his maiden on Sunday in the fourth race at Lone Star Park. He finished third last time out, and takes another drop in class in this small field of six, so we’re hopeful that Sunday could be graduation day for our 3-year-old colt.

Lookwhogotlucky will be breaking from the rail with jockey Rodolfo Guerra aboard as the morning-line favorite with odds of 2-1. Post time is approximately 3:59 p.m. ET.

Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen earned his 14th training title at Lone Star Park at the conclusion of last year’s meet and is the all-time leading trainer at the Texas track.

About the Competition (in post position order):

Tenque (5-1) has had consistent form, and we can probably expect him to hit the board here.

Pickingupstrangers (4-1) has improved sine being gelded in February. He is running one week after his last start on May 1st, but is dropping in class, which could help him graduate, if he can overcome the quick turnaround.

True Dakotan (7-2) ran okay last time out, but has inconsistent form and probably won’t be a huge threat here.

Russet Moon (3-1) ran his best race at this level last time out, where he finished second after leading the field into the stretch. If he can get the lead, he should run well here.

Now We Got a Show (8-1) is the least experienced horse in the field and was not at all competitive in his debut, while being beaten by 22 lengths. He looks to improve here with class relief in what is a big drop from the Maiden Special Weight ranks.

Lookwhogotlucky Update

Lookwhogotlucky worked a half-mile at Louisiana Downs this morning in 51.40 seconds. Additionally, Lookwhogotlucky has been entered in a one mile, $7,500 maiden claiming at Lone Star Park on May 8th. He drew the rail out of six horses entered and jockey Rodolfo Guerra will be aboard. The fourth race will go off at approximately 2:59 p.m. CT.

Lookwhogotlucky Update

After being scratched from his race at the gate last week, Lookwhogotlucky has displayed no signs of discomfort or soundness issues. He galloped the next day and breezed a half mile on Sunday in 51.60 seconds. Since he was put on the vet list from being scratched, state veterinarians are required to watch breezes and look over horses before and after training, to ensure they are perfectly fine in order to come off the vet list.

We will send out an update once we know of a target race for Lookwhogotlucky.
