My Lucky Shoes Runs in Friday Feature

Posted Thursday, Aug 2, 2012

 

Now that she’s figured it out and found the winner’s circle, My Lucky Shoes tries for another taste of victory in Friday’s featured $42,000 allowance optional claiming race.

            The George and Lori Hall color bearer was led over to the races by trainer Kelly John Breen 13 times before she finished first in a $40,000 maiden special weight at Monmouth two starts back on June 10, and last out one month ago, she set the pace in a non-winners of one other than before having to settle for second. On Friday, she breaks from the rail in the field of eight.

            “It’s not the best of post positions, but it looks like she fits in with this group,” said Breen. “She’s been training well for this next start and she loves Monmouth Park.”

            There’s no doubt about that. In seven tries over the main track, she has three seconds and one third to go along with that sole victory.

            Northern Cotton may be her most formidable competition. Conditioned by leading trainer Jane Cibelli, the 3-year-old daughter of High Cotton is dropping down from the $75,000 Sophomore Fillies Stakes for Florida-breds at Tampa Bay Downs last out and has been working very well at Monmouth during her four month break.
