What the Nation is saying about the 2009 CashCall Futurity (G1)...

Lookin at Lucky was the Juvenile Champion of 2009. That year, he won six of seven starts, with only a narrow, tough luck defeat in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The attractive son of Smart Strike followed that lone two-year-old loss with a score in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity in his juvenile finale....Read More

  • https://www.facebook.com/crystal.david.948 · I fell in love with him as a two year old and was sure he would win the Derby. He had some really bad luck in that race or maybe things would have been different. Was definitely broken hearted when they retired him that year after saying he was going to run at 4. Could not believe that Gomez gave him several bad rides in a row (and that is what got him beat in my opinion). Was glad Baffert finally took him off but wish he had done it a race sooner for the Derby. Lookin forward to seeing his sons/daughters starting this year! · 35 days ago ·

It may seem early to get excited about a Kentucky Derby prospect, but it's time to state the obvious: Lookin at Lucky is an exceptional horse who, if he stays healthy, might be very hard to beat come May 1 at Churchill Downs.Read More
Trainer Bob Baffert reported Sunday from Santa Anita that LOOKIN AT LUCKY (Smart Strike), winner of the CashCall Futurity (G1) at Hollywood Park Saturday, and a large supporting cast of rising two-year-old stars all returned in good shape.Read More
It’s a coin flip on whether Saturday’s CashCall Futurity was the first race on the Triple Crown trail or the final opportunity for 2-year-old colts and geldings to qualify for a 2009 Eclipse Award. But with fewer than a couple of weeks in the decade remaining, it seems certain, at least, that Lookin...Read More
Lookin at Lucky won the $750,000 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park on Saturday, his third Grade 1 win of 2009 and arguably his finest. Ridden by Garrett Gomez, Lookin at Lucky raced on the inside, just behind pacesetter The Program on the first turn and backstretch. Read More
Lookin at Lucky reaffirmed his status as the top 2-year-old this year with a sound victory in Saturday's CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park. The Bob Baffter trainee is now the likely Eclipse winner and the early favorite for the Kentucky Derby.Read More
Saturday’s (Day 26) pick six from Hollywood Park includes the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity. It looks like a match race between Lookin at Lucky and Noble’s Promise. The former would’ve captured the BC Juvenile with a better trip, and he figures to get back on the winning track today. My sugges...Read More
This weekend’s stakes schedule is as light as last but certainly more consequential to next year’s Derby trail. The American racing world will be focused on the synthetic track of Hollywood Park as the CashCall Futurity and the Hollywood Starlet are run for late-season California 2-year-old supremac...Read More
I honestly believe that this eight-horse field will provide us with what amounts to a two-horse race on Saturday. There might be one of the others that might be close to Lookin At Lucky and Noble's PromiseRead More
Lookin at Lucky ran the best race in defeat on Breeders' Cup weekend and now looks primed to rebound in Saturday's CashCall Mile, the final major race for 2-year-olds before the Derby trail begins in earnest after the holiday season.Read More

  • cigar · McPeek and co. thought they had the race won at Santa Anita... I was never visually impressed with the overall performance, however, and I want Lookin at Lucky out of there and that's it. Maybe a Look / everyone but Noble's promise zacta is in order? · 1584 days ago ·

  • Medlocke · Lookin at Lucky is, if you'll pardon the pun, a very good looking 2yr.old with, IMO, a world of promise in racing. He's ran really effectively on the synthetic track's and made an awesome accounting of himself, even in defeat, in the Breeders Cup Juvenile. I don't think many would argue the talent is there, but can this talent adapt to the conventional dirt. That's likely the only unanswered question for this 2yr.old, and likely the only question that would prevent him from being a favorite for the 2010 Kentucky Derby as well as the other two Triple Crown races. · 1582 days ago ·
