The connections of Triple Crown hopeful Madefromlucky hope his name rings true, when he breaks from post four in the $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby (G1) on Saturday at Oaklawn.

By finishing first, second or third, Madefromlucky will attain enough points to earn a starting gate berth for the Kentucky Derby (G1) the first Saturday in May.

Madefromlucky ran second in his last start, the $750,000 Rebel S. (G2) on March 14th, his first try in graded stakes company. He is already an impressive winner at the Arkansas Derby's 1 1/8-mile distance.

Cheyenne Stables purchased Madefromlucky privately following his maiden special victory at Gulfstream Park last December. The impeccably-bred colt is by Champion and Preakness (G1) winner Lookin At Lucky, and out of a full sister to record-breaking Champion Sire Tapit.

Now trained by seven-time Eclipse Award winner Todd Pletcher, Madefromlucky will be ridden on Saturday by John Velazquez, who has a win and a second in his two mount aboard the colt. Madefromlucky has compiled a record of 6-2-2-1 and earned $208,700 and currently has 20 points toward a Kentucky Derby berth.

The Arkansas Derby is the 11th race on Saturday's card, with a scheduled post time of 6:18 p.m. CT.

Making his first foray into stakes company, Cheyenne Stables and Mac Nichol’s Madefromlucky battled to a clear second-place finish in the $750,000 Rebel S. (G2) March 14 at Oaklawn Park. 

The 3-year-old colt earned 20 points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby challenge, which places him currently in 13th on the list. The top 20 horses as of entry time for the Derby, which is in late April, are guaranteed a spot in the starting gate for the Run for the Roses on May 2.

Though Madefromlucky couldn’t overcome the presence of American Pharoah, last year’s 2-year-old champion, in the Rebel, the son of Lookin At Lucky was the best of the rest, finishing 2 ½ lengths ahead of third-place finisher Bold Conquest, who is multiple graded stakes placed.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Madefromlucky is now 2-2-1 in his six starts. He broke his maiden Dec. 23 at Gulfstream Park and then came back to score an allowance win at 1 1/8-miles over the same track on Feb. 4. Following the Rebel payday, he has earned $208,700.

Though nothing has been definitively set, Madefromlucky could return to Oaklawn for the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) on April 11, a race worth 100 points to the winner.
