Getting Lucky

Pioneerof the Nile - Lucky Number, by Smart Strike
2018, Dk Bay

Purchased at the Keeneland January sale in 2020, this 2-year-old filly is training at Merryland and preparing for a 3-year-old debut, as she comes from a late-developing but talented family. Her dam is a 1/2 sister to the fabulous race filly Got Lucky and the family hails from blue hen mare Get Lucky, dam of G1 winner and sire Girolamo as well as four other graded stakes horses – including Daydreaming (dam of G1 winner and sire Imagining), Supercharger (dam of G1 winner Super Saver, G3 winner Cyrus Alexander and G3 winner Brethren) and She’s a Winner (dam of G1 winner Bluegrass Cat and former CLF-sire Cal Nation).

Having a filly out of this family is gold, and we hope Getting Lucky carries on the success of her family both on the racetrack and in the future as a broodmare. She’ll head to Mike Trombetta at Laurel in the spring of 2021.
