Lookin At Lucky likely to run in Santa Anita Derby
Trainer Bob Baffert says he is ``90 percent sure'' that Lookin At Lucky will stay home to run in next weekend's $750,000 Santa Anita Derby rather than the Arkansas Derby a week later.
Baffert said Sunday he liked what he saw after Lookin At Lucky worked six furlongs on Santa Anita's synthetic track in 1:12 under regular rider Martin Garcia.
Lookin At Lucky, last year's champion 2-year-old male, made his season debut with a head victory in the Rebel Stakes on dirt at Oaklawn Park last month.
In the Santa Anita Derby, he's expected to face San Felipe winner Sidney's Candy, Sham winner Alphie's Bet, Caracortado, and Setsuko, among others.
