TDN Rising Star for Lookin at Lucky
Opening his account with a dazzling turn of foot at Gulfstream on Thursday was lightly raced colt Country House (3c Lookin at Lucky x Quake Lake, by War Chant).
Second at Aqueduct from just two starts last year as a juvenile, the Bill Mott trained colt gave notice of better things to come with this impressive display.
He missed the start and veered in sharply from gate one, before recovering to surge home from last and win the 1 and 1/16th mile maiden by three lengths earning TDN Rising Star status.
Retained to race by his breeders, Country House is the third winner from Quake Lake, a half-sister to Lookin at Lucky’s classy galloper Breaking Lucky, a Grade I placed, Grade III winner of over $1million in prizemoney.
