Darby Dan Farm’s Country House, winner of the 2019 Kentucky Derby (G1) and a son of Lookin at Lucky, has had his first mare confirmed in foal, the farm announced today.
Bred to the Ghostzapper mare More Everything on Feb. 10, the half-sister to stakes winner and Grade 3-placed Bishop’s Pond and stakes-placed Black Oak has been scanned in foal for owner Watershed Bloodstock, LLC.
Country House broke his maiden with an eye-catching 3 ½-length score over 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park. He then finished a fast-closing second to eventual Classic winner War of Will in the Risen Star S. (G2) at Fair Grounds before finishing fourth in the Louisiana Derby (G2). In his final prep before winning the 145th Kentucky Derby, Country House finished a determined third behind Omaha Beach and Improbable in the Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park.
A half-brother to Graded stakes winner Mitchell Road, Country House is by multiple Champion and Classic winner Lookin At Lucky, a son of two-time Champion Sire and sire of sires Smart Strike who is also represented by the likes of Curlin and English Channel, among many others. He is produced from the winning War Chant mare Quake Lake, a half-sister to Graded stakes winner and multiple Graded stakes-placed Breaking Lucky.
