LUX is a brilliant New Mexico bred gelding whose luck was not equal to his talent. He only started 12 times before an injury put him on the sidelines. All of his starts were in the Land of Enchantment and what a run he had! He won at Ruidoso Downs at first asking in a Maiden Special Weight race going 4 1/2 furlongs on May 25, 2014. He went on to win the Mountain Top New Mexico Bred Thoroughbred Futurity followed by a victory in the Rio Grande Senor Thoroughbred Futurity. He ran second in the New Mexico Classic Cup Juvenile for Colts and Geldings Stakes and in the Red Hedeman Mile Stakes and the Pepsi Cola Stakes. It's hard to stop on such a talented individual, but following his injury in the New Mexico Classic Cup Derby Championship Stakes, veteran owners, Bessie and Steve Prather and Dwayne Taylor, made the hard but CORRECT decision to retire their young champion. When injury pulled him up, he had earned $263,686 and Multiple Stakes Winner status.
