Lookin At Lucky wins Preakness Stakes

By Steve Ginsburg

BALTIMORE (BestGrowthStock) – Lookin At Lucky, ridden by Martin Garcia, returned to form after a disappointing Kentucky Derby to win the $1 million Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday.

Garcia, who replaced Garrett Gomez on Lookin At Lucky after the Kentucky-bred colt finished a disappointing sixth in the Derby, outdueled First Dude in the stretch to win by three-quarters of a length.

Jackson Bend finished third, a head behind First Dude, in the field of 12 at Pimlico Race Course.

Kentucky Derby champion Super Saver was in contention at the top of the stretch but tired badly and finished eighth.

Lookin At Lucky, a bay colt out of Smart Strike, paid $6.80, $4.60 and $3.80 for a $2 ticket.
