Scott, Louisiana USA – September 26, 202 2– Blue Star Racing is excited to announce the arrival of Breaking Lucky to their breeding facilities in Scott, Louisiana. After beginning his stallion career at Blue Star Racing, he moved to Florida for the 2021 and 2022 breeding seasons.
“After many breeder’s requests, we’re excited to bring Breaking Lucky back to the bayou state,” says Dex Comardelle of Blue Star Racing. “It’s no secret Louisiana is one of the most lucrative breeding programs in the country, and with the recent passage of sports betting and Historical racing, we expect Louisiana purses to increase exponentially over the coming years. Now is the time to double down on Louisiana breeding.”
Before retiring to Louisiana off the track, Breaking Lucky successfully raced for the partnerships of West Point Thoroughbreds, Reeves Thoroughbred Racing, Eric Young, and R.A. Hill Stable.
While racing, Breaking Lucky won the Black Type Woodbine’s 2015 Prince of Wales Stakes – the second leg of Canada’s Triple Crown – while defeating MG1SW and 2015 Sovereign Award Champion 3-Year-Old Shaman Ghost (Ghostzapper). In 2016, he won the 2016 G3 Seagram Cup Stakes at Woodbine. Breaking Lucky went on to place in the G1 Clark Handicap, G1 Whitney Stakes, and G1 Stephen Foster Handicap behind Horse of the Year Gun Runner (Candy Ride). In total, Breaking Lucky was on the board in 10 graded stakes and two black type races, while campaigning in two countries, during his racing career. His career earnings were nearly $1.2 million.
Hailing from the red-hot sire line of Lookin at Lucky (Smart Strike), Breaking Lucky also comes from an impressive female family. His dam, GSP Shooting Party (Sky Classic), broke her maiden in her first race. She was second in the G1 Garden City Breeders’ Cup Handicap and was third in both the G3 Pebbles Handicap and the G2 Nassau County Stakes. She had already produced two winners from her first two foals to race when she foaled Breaking Lucky – who went on to win $1,196,376. Currently, she is the dam of four winners including Quake Lake (War Chant) – the dam of G1 Kentucky Derby winner and G1P Country House (Looking at Lucky) and the G3 Gallorette Stakes winner Mitchell Road (English Channel).
Breaking Lucky’s sire, Lookin at Lucky, stands at Ashford Stud in Kentucky. A champion at two and three, he won nine races including the G1 Preakness Stakes, the G1 Izod Haskell Invitational Stakes, the G1 Del Mar Futurity, the G1 Norfolk Stakes, and the G1 CashCall Futurity. Lookin at Lucky was in the money 11 out of 13 starts with career earnings of $3,307,278.
Lookin at Lucky is the sire of Gr.1 Winners Accelerate, Country House, Wow Cat, and Panfield. He is the sire of Gr.2 Winners Madefromlucky, Money Multiplier, Dr Dorr, Diamond Oops, Fancy Liquor, and Wells Bayou. His yearlings have sold for $490,000, $380,000, $320,000, $300,000, etc.
