Derby 139 Profile: Itsmyluckyday

Print

Family and Connections: Sire - Lawyer Ron; Dam - Viva La Slew; trained by Eddie Plesa, Jr.; rider Elvis Trujillo; owner Trilogy Stable.

Pros: He lost the Grade 1 Florida Derby by 2 ¾ lengths to Orb in his last out. However, prior to that, Itsmyluckyday won the Grade 3 Holy Bull over two-year-old champion Shanghai Bobby and the ungraded Gulfstream Park Derby. He’s finished in the money in all three starts this year.

Cons: He failed at the longer distance in the Florida Derby.

Fun Fact: Eddie Plesa, Jr. trained the filly Three Ring, who ran last in the 1999 running of the Kentucky Derby.

Analysis: There’s something special about this colt, plus he has a cool name. Give him another chance.
