Lookin At Lee
Lookin at Lee
The consistent Lookin At Lee has progressed nicely for trainer Steve Asmussen and owner L and N Racing. A son of champion 2-year-old and 3-year-old Lookin At Lucky, he is also the son of graded stakes-placed mare Langara Lass and has nearly tripled his $70,000 auction price in earnings. After winning the Ellis Park Juvenile in his third start, the Kentucky-based bay colt then was a credible second in both the Iroquois at Churchill Downs and Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland. Overall, he has a pair of victories and runner-up finishes from five starts.
With only 20 starts as an owner, L and N Racing is already proving to be a high-percentage operation. In 2016, it has placed in multiple graded stakes, while finishing first or second in 10 of 13 races and earning an impressive $21,679 per start.
Recent Hall of Fame inductee Steve Asmussen has won five Breeders’ Cup races from 39 attempts going into this year’s event. A two-time recipient of the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Trainer, the native of Gettysburg, SD, has led the win totals in the United States five times and was the trainer of two-time Horse of the Year Curlin, 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, and 2014 Breeders' Cup Distaff winner Untapable.
