Luckygray Wins Hyperion Stakes

Monday, 25th June 2012

Glenlogan Park Stud's dual stakes-winning stallion Bradbury's Luck (Redoute's Choice-Skating, by At Talaq) added a group success when favoured 4YO gelding Luckygray (Bradbury's Luck-Damah Lady, by Mukaddamah) notched his 3rd successive group win in a month with a half-length victory in the $125,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) at Belmont Park in Perth. Luckygray (ridden by Shaun O'Donnell for trainer Gino Poletti) defeated dead-heating 6YO gelding Grand Nirvana (Scenic-Paradise Park, by Bletchley Park) & 5YO mare Rosie Rocket (Blackfriars-Rose For Jodi, by Scenic). Luckygray (a $46,000 yearling consigned by Riverslea Farm at the 2009 Magic Millions Perth Sale) took his record to 10 wins (also including last start's Gr3 Belmont Sprint over 1400m at Belmont Park on June 9 & May's Gr3 Roma Cup over 1200m at Belmont Park, plus 2011's Gr1 Railway Stakes over 1600m at Ascot & Gr3 Asian Beau Stakes over 1400m at Ascot) & 1 placing (in 2011's Magic Millions Perth Trophy over 1400m at Ascot) from 13 starts for $1,135,675 earnings.
