Named in honor of one of his owners, Looking At Lee got an ideal rail-skimming trip in the Kentucky Derby, saving ground while far back in the early stages before finding room around the far turn and surging past tiring horses to finish second at odds of 33-1, five lengths ahead of Battle of Midway.
Lookin At Lee, a son two-time champion and 2010 Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky, has been fed a steady diet of stakes since breaking his maiden last July at Ellis Park. He won the Ellis Park Juvenile, was second in the Iroquois (G3) and Breeders’ Futurity (G1), and closed to be fourth behind Breeders’ Futurity winner Classic Empire in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1).
Based at Oaklawn Park over the winter to open his sophomore season, Lookin At Lee finished third in the Southwest (G3) and sixth in the Rebel (G2) before launching a late rally for third behind Classic Empire in the Arkansas Derby (G1), a move that would look familiar three weeks later.
Looking At Lee began his career at the famed El Primero Training Center in Laredo, Texas, founded by Keith and Marilyn Asmussen, the parents of his Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen.
