Mike Pegram and partners’ Lookin At Lucky was the obvious choice going to the post for the Juvenile despite drawing the far outside 13, but some traffic trouble and the wide trip conspired against the favorite as he fell a head short of catching Godolphin’s 30-to-1 longshot Vale of York at the wire with Noble Promise only another half-length back in third in a four-horse, photo-finish.

An Irish-bred colt by Invicible Spirit, Vale of York was generally regarded a second tier 2-year-old on his five-race European form, finishing second in the Gran Criterium in Milan, Italy as his final race before the Breeders’ Cup. In only one start after the Breeders’ Cup, he finished fourth in a stakes in Dubai in early March of 2010.
