Trilogy Stable and Laurie Plesa’s Itsmyluckyday spent the year taking on the best older horses in training, highlighted by taking the Woodward Stakes (G1) as the Saratoga meeting drew to a close. Out west, Braly Family Trust’s Tom’s Tribute carried the OBS March banner to Del Mar and captured the Eddie Read Stakes (G1) in July.
