Gainesway sales grad Midnight Lucky romps in G1 Humana Distaff


Monday, May 05, 2014 |
Midnight Lucky, making her first start in more than 11 months, took the lead out of the gate and scored a dominating 4 ½-length victory in the $330,600 Humana Distaff (G1) Saturday at Churchill Downs.

Owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, Midnight Lucky was consigned by Gainesway, as agent, to the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale. Pegram was the winning bidder, going to $220,000 for the daughter of Midnight Lute out of Citiview, who is a full sister to Pegram's Grade 1 La Brea S. winner Hookedonthefeelin.

Ridden by Rosie Napravnik, Midnight Lucky led the field through fractions of :22.74 and :45.04 down the backstretch. At the head of the stretch, Midnight Lucky got a challenge from Judy the Beauty, but quickly put her away to open up a clear lead. She ran the seven furlongs on a fast main track in 1:22.23.

The Distaff victory was worth $202,922 and improved Midnight Lucky’s earnings to $565,022 with a record of 5-4-0-0. Her lone loss came in last year’s Kentucky Oaks (G1).
