Lookin At Lucky Won't Return to Kentucky for the 2024 Breeding Season

Lookin At Lucky | Coolmore

Long-time Ashford Stud sire Lookin At Lucky (Smart Strike–Private Feeling, by Belong to Me) will be staying in Chile at Haras Don Alberto for the next season and will not be available to cover mares in Kentucky in 2024, officials at Coolmore America confirmed Thursday.

A champion at two and three, as well as winner of the GI Preakness S. and four other Grade I events, Lookin At Lucky's first foals were born in 2012. Among his 74 black-type winners and 49 graded winners worldwide are champion and GI Breeders' Cup Classic winner Accelerate and GI Kentucky Derby winner Country House in the U.S., as well as Chilean Horse of the Year Wow Cat (Chi), who is also a Grade I winner in the U.S. Lookin At Lucky has been wildly successful in Chile, siring an additional five champions there, while another of his Chilean-breds was exported to Hong Kong and was named champion there in 2021.

Based in the U.S. at Ashford, Lookin At Lucky shuttled his first year to Australia for the Southern Hemisphere season and has visited Chile a majority of the seasons since.
