Itsmyluckyday Breezes Bullet at Calder


By Dick Downey

Saturday at Calder Race Course, Itsmyluckyday breezed for the second time since winning the Grade III Holy Bull Stakes, and it was a bullet.

The Eddie Plesa, Jr. trainee was timed for five furlongs in 1:01.60 (1/16) toward his next start on March 30, the Grade I Florida Derby. The son of Lawyer Ron went a half-mile in 48.80 on Feb. 23.

Itsmyluckyday is part of Kentucky Derby Future Wager Pool 2 and closed Friday's opening round at his morning line odds, 12-1.

At Palm Meadows, Honorable Dillon went a half-mile in :47.80 for trainer Eddie Kenneally. Last time out, Honorable Dillon won the seven-furlong, Grade II Hutcheson Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 2. Kenneally has said he'll enter Honorable Dillon to face Verrazano, Falling Sky and others in next Saturday's Grade III Tampa Bay Derby. The 1 1/16-mile mile race will be colt's first try at two turns.
