Breaking Lucky (Lookin At Lucky–Shooting Party, by Sky Classic), winner of the 2015 Prince of Wales S. in Canada and a Grade III winner and treble Grade I-placed later in his career, will continue his stud career at Pleasant Acres Stallions in Morriston, Florida, in 2021. He will stand for a fee of $5,000.
Bred in Ontario by Christine Hayden, Breaking Lucky was a solid fifth to Shaman Ghost (Ghostzapper) in the 2015 Queen's Plate before turning the tables in the second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown at Fort Erie. Winner of the GIII Seagram Cup S. on the Woodbine synthetic in 2016, he hit the board behind Gun Runner in the 2016 GI Clark H., the 2017 GI Stephen Foster H. and 2017 GI Whitney S.
A son of the Grade I-placed Shooting Party, Breaking Lucky is a half-sister to Quake Lake (War Chant), the dam of GI Kentucky Derby hero Country House (Lookin At Lucky) as well as the talented turf distaffer Mitchell Road (English Channel) from the same Smart Strike sire line.
“Our mission has always been to expand Florida's breeding program by offering exceptional stallion bloodlines,” said Joe Barbazon, owner of Pleasant Acres Stallions. “Bringing Breaking Lucky to Pleasant Acres Stallions is a huge win for all of us in the state. This successful GSW millionaire is the the only son of Lookin at Lucky to be standing in Florida and we are proud to have him at Pleasant Acres Stallions.”
