Lucky Move Posts $87.60 Upset In Opening-Day Obeah Stakes At Delaware Park

Ten Strike Racing’s Lucky Move posted an upset victory in the $100,000 Obeah Stakes on the opening day card at Delaware Park in Wilmington, Del., on Wednesday.  The Obeah is the local prep for the Grade 2 Delaware Handicap to be run on July 11.

With Roberto Rosado aboard, the daughter of Lookin At Lucky won by 1 1/4 lengths and returned $87.60 as the second longest-shot in the field of eight.  Vault, with Florent Geroux, finished second.  It was another a three lengths farther back to the even-money favorite Lady Apple, with Ricardo Santana, Jr., in third.  Lucky Move covered the mile and a sixteenth in 1:42.28 on a fast main track.

Second-last early as Bronx Beauty led the way, Lucky Move commenced a wide rally approaching the far turn, took command into the stretch and was never threatened. Fractions in the race were :23.30, :47.22, 1:11.35 and 1:36.04.

The Obeah Stakes was the first career stakes victory for the New York-bred conditioned by Juan Carlos Guerrero.  She raised her career record to 5 wins from 27 starts with earnings of $264,573.

Ten Strike Racing claimed Lucky Move for $30,000 on April 30, 2019 out of a turf race at Churchill Downs. Lucky Move is out of the Quiet American mare, Quiet Mover.
