The last few weeks has featured cavalcade of reports regarding injuries and retirements in the horse racing world, something that can seriously dampen any fan's enthusiasm for this fall's Breeders' Cup.  However, at least one horse who was sidelined earlier this summer has made his way back to the track: Bob Baffert's Lookin At Lucky.

According to an article over at the Paulick Report today, the Preakness and Haskell winner breezed four furlongs in 49 and 2 at Del Mar in his first morning work since coming down with an illness following his race at Monmouth Park.  The move ranked 26th out of 43 horses to work at that distance this morning.

Baffert did not indicate where Lookin At Lucky might run his next race but here's to hoping for no more speed bumps on his road to the Breeders' Cup.
