Lookin At Lucky survives to take on Zenyatta

Lookin At Lucky survives to take on Zenyatta

Bob Baffert wanted to keep Preakness Stakes winner Lookin At Lucky around until the end of the year to run in the Breeders' Cup Classic. It wasn't easy.
The 3-year-old colt opened the U.S. Triple Crown series in May as the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby. Instead, he finished sixth, done in by starting on the rail and getting bumped around in the early going.
Lookin At Lucky was wiped out from the experience, and Hall of Fame trainer Baffert throught they'd head home to California.
But he waited a week at Churchill Downs and the colt perked up, so Baffert decided to take him to Baltimore for the Preakness.
The trip paid off. Lookin At Lucky won, giving Baffert his first Triple Crown victory in eight years.
