He spent 12 years under the tutelage of Hall Of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas and was responsible for such champions as Lady's Secret, Kentucky Derby winner Thunder Gulch and Serena's Song. Two of his biggest career wins came with Kentucky Oaks winner Lemon's Forever in 2006 and Breeders Cup winner Unbridled Elaine in 2001.

Irish Lute is out of the Storm Boot mare Shaniowa and by Midnight Lute, who was honored with an Eclipse Award as champion sprinter in 2007 following a 4 3/4-length victory in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.
Midnight Lute also captured the Grade 1 Forego that season and returned the next year from a nine-month layoff to defend his Breeders’ Cup title off just one prep.
Shaniowa alternated between stakes company and the claiming ranks during her time on track. She is a half-sister to multiple stakes winners Southern Shame and Myth of Gold, and produced a stakes-placed runner in Dodgen Bullets prior to Irish Lute.
This female family is responsible for Grade 3-placed stakes scorers Drummer Boy and Belle’s Ruler.
