The 5-year-old, who is by two-time champion Lookin At Lucky  and out of a full sister to three-time leading sire Tapit , retires with a record of 6-5-5 from 24 career starts. 

Madefromlucky won his final two starts—the 1 1/2-mile Greenwood Cup Stakes (G3) at Parx Racing in September, which he won by 12 1/4 lengths, and the Temperence Hill Invitational at 1 5/8 miles at Belmont Park Oct. 1. He was a graded stakes winner twice at 3, taking the West Virginia Derby (G2) and Peter Pan Stakes (G2), both at 1 1/8 miles. 

Madefromlucky was a winner at 2 by 4 3/4 lengths in a maiden race at Gulfstream Park, and after taking his 3-year-old debut, also at Gulfstream, he competed exclusively in stakes competition. In addition to his wins, he finished second to American Pharoah  in the grade 2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park in his stakes debut.

From the first crop of classic winner Lookin At Lucky, Madefromlucky is out of Home From Oz (by Pulpit) and is a half brother to A Shin Gold, a stakes-placed earner of $805,785 in Japan. His second dam, stakes winner Tap Your Heels, is a half sister to champion sprinter and successful sire Rubiano. The family also includes Belmont Stakes (G1) winner, champion, and grade 1 sire Summer Birdand sire Glitterman.

Madefromlucky arrived at Northview and is available for inspection.

"We're very excited to have Madefromlucky at the farm. He has the looks to back up his high-profile pedigree and race record," said David Wade, general manager of Northview. "I'd encourage breeders to make an appointment to come to the farm and see for themselves."
