CHESNUT COLT (USA) 2019
LEA - SEEKING LUCK (SEEKING THE GOLD)

STORY

This 2019 yearling colt was bought for £60,000 at the 2020 Goffs Orby Sale in England.

He is a typical American horse bred for the dirt and was pinhooked by Glidawn Stud as a foal at Keeneland in Kentucky.

He will go into training with Lennart J:r Reuterskiöld at Jägersro, Sweden, and will be campaigned towards the Swedish Derby Series on the dirt in 2022.

The yearling colt is bred in Kentucky and by Claiborne Farms’ record-setting Grade 1 winner Lea (pictured).

Multi-surface, international star Lea is a son of Claiborne stallion First Samurai, who carries on the Giant’s Causwway sire line.

Lea is out of a mare by global top sire Galileo, a stakes-placed half sister to three graded stakes winners. 

A Grade 1 winner on dirt and graded stakes winner on turf, versatility courses through Lea’s bloodlines. 

A winner of over $2.3 million and track record-setter, Lea raced until age 6, he was as honest as they come, hitting the board in graded stakes races.

The yearling colt is a half-brother to three winners from as many runners out of his dam, Seeking Luck (Seeking The Gold).
