Fast old man takes claiming honors

Lookn Mighty Fast captured the fourth race at Churchill Downs Saturday afternoon and has been named the Claimer of the Week. The seven year old was close up early and seized the lead at the quarter pole before kicking on to the wire in the race for $25,000 claimers. Lookn Mighty Fast covered six furlongs in 1:10.44 on a fast track and returned $8.00 to his supporters. The son of Classic winner Point Given was ridden by Julien Leparoux and trained by Greg Foley. The bay gelding is owned by Friendship Stable and now has 11 lifetime wins. Lookn Mighty Fast has finished in the money (top three) in 23 of his 47 races with lifetime earnings exceeding $297,000.
