After having a tough time out night racing at Churchill Downs 3 weeks ago, our home stabelmate, Luzianna Man, ran beautifully in Keeneland's 7th race yesterday, October 12th, a $54,779 Allowance.
Drawing the first post position, he got squeezed out at the start to trail the field, but once he settled in the back, he cruised right along. While watching we had our doubts that any sort of recovery was possible but going 5 wide off the final turn he showed just how much was left in the tank and came up to take 3rd place.
It was a tough field, the favored winner, Schivarelli (Montbrook,) having run in stakes company as well other standouts, Mio D'Oro who set an early pace.
Looking forward to a strong next race, as we head back to Churchill Downs after a well deserved rest.
