This Could Be a “Lucky Lead” for Someone Out There!

Lucky Lead is a 5-year-old, 16.1-hand Thoroughbred gelding, by Harlan’s Holiday out of a Cryptoclearance mare.

Cryptoclearance was a stakes-winning racehorse who went on to be an amazing broodmare sire. ?In a Blood-Horse interview, Steve Johnson, managing partner of Margaux Farm, said: “His contribution to the breed is that of soundness, stamina, and above all else heart.” ? With looks like Lucky Lead is showing (more photos on website) and a heritage like that, what the heck is this horse doing in a rescue facility for $750′

The rescue facility, in Ohio, says his build is uphill athletic and sturdy, potential for a great sport horse with a personality to match. He longes and works under saddle and is “sweet and playful. . . ?He is among the first to greet us when we enter the barn with friendly ears pricked forward,” says the rescue facility staff. ?Lucky is suitable for a strong intermediate rider with a trainer.
