Gelding whose mother was rescued wins horse race

In this March 13, 2013, photo provided by Four Footed Fotos, Magna Fortuna, with jockey Julio Felix up, rides to a 9 3/4-length win during a horse race at Hawthorne Park in Cicero, Ill. The 3-year-old gelding whose name means "great luck" was the longest of long shots when he won a recent race. His mother, Lulu, was purchased for $300 at a slaughter auction by Gail Vacca, founder and president of the Illinois Equine Rescue Center. Vacca found out later that Lulu was pregnant when purchased.
