Indiana Derby: Lookin At Lucky Looms Large

Lookin At Lucky’s performance in the $500,000 Indiana Derby (G2) on Saturday at Hoosier Park will determine whether the Smart Strike colt will move forward to take on older horses for the first time in the $5-million Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) five weeks later at Churchill Downs.


Last year’s champion two-year-old male, Lookin At Lucky is in the driver’s seat to become the first colt since Spectacular Bid in 1979-’80 to repeat as champion three-year-old male. The Smart Strike colt won the Preakness (G1) and Haskell Invitational (G1) Stakes this year but has not raced since his four-length score in the Haskell on August 1 at Monmouth Park.
