JJ’s Lucky Train fought like an old warrior and won the fifth race at Gulfstream Friday without much difficulty. The odds-on choice engaged the pretenders early and crossed the wire 3 lengths to the good of his opposition for his seventh career victory. The winner covered the 7 panels in 1:23.29 and paid $3.00 to his supporters. The 6 year old horse was ridden by Paco Lopez in the $12,500 claiming event. It was the first race for the son of Silver Train for his new barn after being claimed by trainer Antonio Sano. JJ’s Lucky Train is owned by The 3 Maria’s Racing Stable and has finished in the money 15 times from 24 career starts. His lifetime bankroll now stands at a whopping $462,000.
