Itsmyluckyday was awarded ten points towards his entry into the 2013 Kentucky Derby.
Amongst the field of 10 for the 2013 Holy Bull Stakes was fan-favorite Dewey Square. Experts predicted the handsome colt would show his speed during Saturday’s race. Sadly, Dewey Square had some trouble handling the dirt. “He just didn’t like having dirt thrown in his face”, sources revealed. Additional information was released via facebook stating, “Dewey looked bright and sound today. He ate most of his lunch, so he’s feeling ok. But he definitely hated the sandblasting he got going around the turn, and he will have to try another race strategy or get used to the dirt in his face. They can learn from a bad experience.” – Doug Cauthen, Siena Farm’s racing manager.
Lady and The Track would like to congratulate Elvis Trujillo, trainer Edward Plesa Jr., Trilogy Stable, and the speedy Itsmyluckyday on their 2013 Holy Bull Stakes win and new Gulfstream Park record!
