Claimed for $30,000 just over a year ago, Lucky Move notched her first stakes victory, in open company, against a solid field in the Obeah Stakes at Delaware on Wednesday.
Opening day at @DelParkRacing is plenty of reason to celebrate… and leave it to the #NYbred to bring the fireworks! @Tenstrikeracing's Lucky Move, bred by bred by Maltese Cross & Stonegate, pulled off a 42-1 shocker in the Obeah. Full recap: https://t.co/n8hzdi656q pic.twitter.com/kZ3xpnHkcw

The six year old Lookin At Lucky mare was making her first start in nearly four months and it looks as though the time off did her well. Sitting off the pace as she usually does, she was kept quiet for the early part of the race before making an eye catching move around the far turn before holding off a challenge in the stretch to win by 1 1/4 lengths, earning a career best Beyer Speed Figure of 93.
The win marked Lucky Move’s first stakes success after coming close on numerous occasions, including a close 2nd place finish in the Ladies Handicap at Aqueduct in January.
