LIGHTNING LOU has been purchased privately on behalf of Medallion Racing and Partners to head to Mike Maker the States.  Trained by Rod Millman, LIGHTNING LOU won impressively in a one mile Fillies’ Maiden at Lingfield in February.  Showing promise in her first two starts she was second to John Gosden-trained KESTENNA (rated 99 and holds an entry in the 1000 Guineas) and BINT AL ANOOD.

A beautifully-bred filly by Brazen Beau, her dam is a half-sister to Champion, multiple G1 winner SKY LANTERN as well as G3 winners SHANTY STAR and ARCTIC.  Her third dam, NEGLIGENT was Champion two-year-old filly in England.

We hope she is very lucky for her new connections stateside.
