Epic Luck made a memorable 2-year-old debut, as the son of Madefromlucky galloped home a 10 3/4-length winner at Delaware Park on July 28. Leading throughout the one-mile maiden race on a fast main track, he was never threatened and drew off under little urging.

MA Hoofp032 210728 6589 copyTrained by Lynn Ashby, who co-bred the bay gelding in Pennsylvania with William Gotwals, Epic Luck is co-owned by Gotwals and Mark Ashby. Out of A Dicey Dame (by Colonel John), he is the first winner for Northview Stallion Station’s freshman sire Madefromlucky.

Syndicate-owned Madefromlucky has 36 foals in his first crop. The 9-year-old chestnut, by champion and champion sire Lookin At Lucky out of a full sister to three-time leading sire Tapit, retired a millionaire after winning six of 24 career starts, four of them stakes, including the West Virginia Derby-G2, Peter Pan Stakes-G2 and Greenwood Cup-G3. Among his eight stakes-placings was a second behind American Pharoah in the Grade 2 Rebel at Oaklawn Park in his stakes debut. He retired having won or placed 16 times while earning $1,351,500.

Out of the Pulpit mare Home From Oz, Madefromlucky is a half-brother to A Shin Gold, a stakes-placed earner of $805,785 in Japan. His second dam, stakes winner Tap Your Heels, is a half-sister to champion sprinter and leading sire Rubiano. The family also includes Belmont Stakes winner, champion and Grade 1 sire Summer Bird, major sire Relaunch and successful sire Glitterman.

Madefromlucky stood the 2021 season in Chesapeake City for $5,000 live foal, payable when the foal stands and nurses.
