Lookin At Lucky, last year's 2-year-old male champion and the current leader of the 3-year-old division coming off victories in the Preakness Stakes and Haskell Invitational, had his first breeze since the Haskell this morning at Del Mar, going an easy half-mile without company. Trainer Bob Baffert said the work was accomplished in :49 3/5.

“He went nice and easy,” said Baffert. “When he works alone, he always goes pretty easy.” Lookin At Lucky got sick following his four-length victory in the Aug. 1 Haskell at Monmouth Park, and, according to Baffert, had “lost a lot of weight” by the time he got back to Southern California. “He's been back galloping for a couple of weeks, but he'll tell me when he's ready to run again,” the Hall of Fame trainer said. Baffert said the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on Nov. 6 is Lookin At Lucky's ultimate goal this year.
