Yesterday was a big day for Lane’s End, as the Eclipse Awards were handed out in Beverly Hills.
Our two-time leading sire SMART STRIKE, already the sire of two-time Horse of the Year CURLIN and Champion Turf Horse ENGLISH CHANNEL, added yet another Eclipse champion to his resume. SMART STRIKE is the sire of ten champions.
This time, it was the brilliant two-year-old colt Lookin at Lucky who shone on Eclipse night. In a season that included three Grade 1 victories and a narrow runner-up finish in the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, Lookin at Lucky was a landslide winner as the best two-year-old colt in 2009. Congratulations to breeder Gulf Coast Farms and all the racing connections of Lookin at Lucky!
