Itsmyluckyday is an interesting new shooter on the Kentucky Derby 2013 trail following a strong victory over Shanghai Bobby in the G3 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Jan 26.
The winning BSF in the Holy Bull was 104 and the top two were well
clear of the rest. It was definitely a fast race by two quality colts
but I do not think we saw the Kentucky Derby winner on Saturday.
Itsmyluckyday was making his 9th career start on Jan 26
and clearly has an affinity for Gulfstream Park following big wins in
the GP Derby and Holy Bull. The son of Lawyer Ron is now 4-for-4 in
Florida (CRC/GP) conventional dirt races. I like his trainer Eddie Plesa
Jr. and the overachiever is easy to root for.
Shanghai Bobby ran well but had no excuses. Inside
speed dominates in 8.5f events at the Gulf and he had everything his own
way from the rail. I removed him from my top ten after the BC Juvenile
because of distance limitations and he backed up my lack of stamina
opinion on Saturday.
