Conquest Bigluck E's dad is Lookin at Lucky out of Smart Strike, a two-time Eclipse Award winner, Preakness leg of the Triple Crown winner, winner of eight graded stakes races and winner of over $3,300,000 in purses.

A valued member of the Conquest team, our agent Mike Lightner traveled around to farms all over the country looking at yearlings to select for Conquest Stables. This is the first year Lookin at Lucky had offspring available for sale. Conquest Stables loves buying yearlings from first crop stallions, so when Mike saw Conquest Bigluck E, he knew he had to buy him. 

We all knew he was something special, and in Bigluck E's early training he has proved and lived up to everything we thought he would be. The “E” in his name is taken from Ernie (Conquest Stables’ co-owner), who is also known to his friends as “E" and that puts a ton of pressure on this horse to be one of our best. When a horse gets the “E", it better be a winner. Let's hope Bigluck E can have the same successful two-year-old campaign as his dad did!

With a father like Lookin at Lucky, and a namesake like co-owner Ernie Semersky, we have high hopes for this colt!
