Lookin At Lucky Colt Sells for $700,000 at OBS
West Bloodstock was the winning bidder on a Lookin At Lucky colt on Wednesday when going to $700,000 on behalf of Repole Stable to make the colt the fifth most expensive juvenile of the session.
Offered by Cortez Racing and Sales, the colt out of stakes winner Joffe’s Run had sold in October to All In Investor from the Taylor Made consignment before heading to this sale and breezing in :10.0 during the Under Tack Sale.
“I liked the colt, I liked the pedigree. Lookin At Lucky is a nice stallion who was doing really well in Chile and I am from Chile. I liked him physically and I was looking at how I thought he would develop in a couple of years. I was looking to see if he would develop into what he looks like right now,” the colt’s former owner Javier Arellano told Thoroughbred Daily News.
Giant’s Causeway daughter Joffe’s Run won four races in her career as a fourth-generation stakes winner with each of this colt’s first eight dams all stakes winners or producers. His dam has yet to produce a stakes performer but is the dam of four winners from six runners. Her own dam produced seven winners including to stakes performers and two other stakes producers.
Giant’s Causeway mares have produced nine winners from 16 runners by Lookin At Lucky, led by Group III winner and Group II-placed Apocaliptica and stakes winner and Grade I placed Maybellene.
