West Point Purchases Interest in Pegasus Contender
We’re thrilled to announce that West Point Thoroughbreds has purchased an interest in Pegasus World Cup contender Breaking Lucky.
Pegasus gate owner Reeves Thoroughbred Racing reached a deal with Gunpowder Farms and West Point Thoroughbreds to run the son of Lookin at Lucky in the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus Gold Cup held January 28 at Gulfstream Park.
“Tom Keithley and his wife Ericka are West Point Partners and we’re grateful for the opportunity to become involved with Breaking Lucky,” said WPT president Terry Finley. “He’s a big, handsome, sound horse who ran bang-up in two grade one races in 2016. He’s being syndicated quickly and our Partners are super pumped about participating in the richest horse race ever.”
After getting beat just a neck in the Woodward Stakes (G1) at Saratoga, the Reade Baker trainee was second to Gun Runner in the Clark Handicap (G1) at Churchill. Also on his resume are wins in the Prince of Wales Stakes (second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown) and Seagram Cup Stakes (G3).
