Hucklebuck Named SA HOTY

Monday, 31st August 2015

Top-class galloper Hucklebuck (Elvstroem-Kondari, by O'Reilly) has been crowned South Australia's Horse of the Year for the 2014-15 season. Hucklebuck edged out Happy Trails to take the major award at the 2014/15 TRSA Industry Awards held at the Stamford Grand in Glenelg on Saturday night. Both graduates of the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale - Hucklebuck ($50,000 purchase) and Happy Trails ($11,000) - won Gr1 events at the Melbourne Cup Carnival meaning the Morphettville auction was the only sale in the world to supply multiple Gr1 winners of Australia's most famous carnival. A son of Elvstroem, Hucklebuck was purchased as a yearling by his trainer Phillip Stokes from the Squillani Park draft. The good looking miler is raced by Macau Jockey Club boss Thomas Li. Li was on hand at the presentation to receive the award and praised Stokes for his handling of Hucklebuck who claimed the biggest win of his career when landing the Gr1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington in November.
