MyRacehorse Adds Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas to Trainer Roster
August 26, 2022 – MyRacehorse is proud to announce Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas as the newest addition to the MyRacehorse cast of trainers. A list that includes Hall of Famers, Todd Pletcher, Mark Casse, Bill Mott, Steve Asmussen, and more. Lukas has been announced to train the latest offering, Smart Shopping ‘21, a colt by the late, great Arrogate, sire of 2022 Kentucky Oaks winner, Secret Oath. The pairing of Lukas and Smart Shopping ‘21 is the perfect match and the stunning gray/roan colt will be located on the lucrative Kentucky/New York circuits for the legendary trainer.
A winner of 20 Breeders’ Cup World Championship races, five Eclipse Awards, and 4 Kentucky Derbys, Lukas has certainly ascended his way to the top in the world of horse racing. The colt he will train is by a sire who to this day remains the world’s richest racehorse, amassing earnings of over $17,000,000 in his impressive career.
“Adding a world-class name such as D. Wayne Lukas to MyRacehorse is an honor,” MyRacehorse CEO Michael Behrens said. “Teaming up to provide our owners with the opportunity to say their horse is trained by the “Coach”, and an Arrogate, no less, is very exciting and what we strive to provide as we celebrate racehorse ownership with our growing owner base.”
Smart Shopping ‘21 caught the eyes of the MyRacehorse bloodstock team at the recent 2022 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling Sale. Dropping the hammer at $300,000, the strapping two-turn specimen was one the team felt they could not leave the sale without.
“D. Wayne Lukas is still the King at the age of 86 as evidenced by his success in this year’s Kentucky Oaks with Secret Oath. A supreme master of his trade and one who has mentored some of the best trainers in the business, Wayne’s horsemanship skills to this day are to be revered,” said Roderick Wachman, Global Head of Bloodstock and Racing.
Both MyRacehorse and Lukas look forward to an exciting journey with Smart Shopping ‘21. Shares for the colt start at $127, with the indicate interest period opening today, spots can be “reserved” to notch a spot in line when public access begins.
