Horse Bio


If he can get close enough to the field nearing the final turn, the Steve Asmussen-trained Lookin At Lee is the type to sneak past the field and into the prize money.


Lookin At Lee was many lengths behind in the early stages of three marquee races, but rallied strongly in each. He finished second in the Breeders’ Futurity (G1), fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), and third in his first three-year-old start, the Southwest Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park on Feb. 20, albeit 11-3/4 lengths from the winner, One Liner.


Following his respectable showing in the Southwest Stakes, Lookin At Lee stumbled to a sixth-place finish in the Rebel Stakes (G2). He did bounceback in the Arkansas Derby though, finishing a close third, only 1-½ lengths behind winner Classic Empire. He is on the bubble to run in the Kentucky Derby.


Bred by Ray Hanson in Kentucky, Lookin At Lee was a $70,000 purchase at the 2015 Keeneland September yearling sale. He is raced by L and N Racing LLC.


On pedigree, Lookin At Lee isn’t certain to stay 1-1/4 miles. His sire Lookin At Lucky was probably at his best short of the Derby trip, finishing sixth in the 2010 Derby and fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. His dam Langara Lass (by Langfuhr) is from a family which has produced several stakes performers in British Columbia, mostly up to 1-1/8 miles.


Lookin At Lee was a 37-1 chance in Pools 1 and 2 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager, but anyone fancying his chances could only take him as part of the “all others” option in Pool 3.
