LONE STAR PARK RACING CLUB JUST CAN’T SEEM TO LOSE, RACKS UP THIRD WIN OF THE MEET
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (Saturday, July 14, 2018) – Friday the 13th turned out to be super lucky for the Lone Star Park Racing Club as their horse Fred’s Lucky Boy won the first race on the card, giving the club its third win for the meet.
Under the guidance of jockey Lane Luzzi, Fred’s Lucky Boy raced just off the pace, went four wide in the turn and with a bid led under a drive to get up by three-quarters over favorite Reflector. I’m a Rock lead until the final sixteenth, but could only hold on for show.
Luzzi has been aboard for all three of the clubs victories and the members love him. They raved about how perfect he has ridden each of the three races for them. The same praise was lauded on trainer J. R. Caldwell for a job well done.
“Much appreciation for making this racing club a wonderful and enjoyable
Experience,” said club member Ruth Rohloff. “It’s been great fun owning horses and interesting learning what goes on behind the scenes in thoroughbred horse racing.”
Like Lodi Street, the clubs first winner, Fred’s Lucky Boy was claimed from the race. That leaves the club with Peej. It’s possible they could have one more start with Peej before the final day of racing next Sunday. Could they possibly get a fourth win before it’s all said and done? It wouldn’t be a reach to think it possible with the success they’ve had.
