The colt by champion Lawyer Ron won the off-the-turf Fasig-Tipton Turf Dash Stakes before a three-length romp in the Foolish Pleasure Stakes. Itsmyluckyday won back-to-back races in his first two races of 2013, setting a track record in his win over champion Shanghai Bobby in the Holy Bull (G3). Itsmyluckyday finished second to Orb in the Florida Derby (G1) but secured himself a spot in the Kentucky Derby with his Derby prep performances. After a 15th place finish in the Kentucky Derby, Itsmyluckyday finished second in the Preakness Stakes.
Itsmyluckyday was a $110,000 purchase at a 2-year-olds in training sale in 2012.
