Cheyenne Stables LLC and Mac Nichol’s Madefromlucky swept past the favorites to the front a furlong from home in Saturday’s $200, 000 Peter Pan Stakes (G2) and went on from there to score by a length and a half. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Lookin At Lucky, second to Derby winner American Pharoah in Oaklawn’s Rebel Stakes (G2) in March. Trained by Todd Pletcher, he’s now 8-3-2-1 with $378,700 in earnings. He was purchased by Mr. Nichol for $150,000 out of the Crupi’s New Castle Farm consignment at the 2013 OBS March Sale after breezing an eighth in :10 4/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video

Success Racing’s Sky Preacher picked up his first stakes win in the $75,000 Golden Poppy Stakes at Golden Gate Sunday, going to the lead at the start, staying there all the way and holding on to win by a nose.  Trained by Doug O’Neill, the 3-year-old son of Sky Mesa was purchased for $80,000 by Russell Smith out of the Eisaman Equine consignment at the 2014 March Sale after working an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5.
