Our Lukas Wins Ipswich Cup

Monday, 21st June 2010

On the Australian track, former NZ Glenmorgan Farm & Westbury Stud shuttler Generous (Caerleon-Doff The Derby, by Master Derby) added a black-type success when favoured 6YO gelding Our Lukas (Generous-Parfore, by Gold Brose) notched his 2nd stakes-win in a week with victory by a nose in the $200,000 Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m) at Ipswich in Queensland, to also claim this race for the 2nd year in succession. Our Lukas (ridden by Stathi Katsidis for trainer Robert Heathcote) defeated 4YO geldings Frozone (Reset-Ice Maiden, by O'Reilly) & Warrior Within (King Cugat-Ava Bolli, by Volksraad). Our Lukas (a NZ$20,000 yearling consigned by Westbury Stud at the 2005 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) now has 11 wins (also including last start's Listed Strawberry Road Handicap over 1600m at Eagle Farm on June 12, plus 2009's Listed Brisbane Handicap over 1600m at Eagle Farm & Listed Ipswich Cup over 2150m) & 9 placings (including May's Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup over 1615m at Doomben, plus 2009's Listed Phil Sullivan Handicap over 1600m at Eagle Farm) from 36 starts for $545,950 earnings.
