Luckygray Retired

Thursday, 16th June 2016

Three-time Gr1-winning Perth galloper Luckygray (Bradbury's Luck-Damah Lady, by Mukaddamah) has been retired following his disappointing 11th place finish in last weekend's Gr3 Hyperion Stakes at Belmont, reports the West Australian. Trevor Andrews described the 8YO as the best horse he has ever trained. "He's by far the best horse we've had come through my joint," Andrews said. "He won three Group 1s and nearly $3 million. His record speaks for itself. He just wasn't running well enough to keep going on with it." Andrews added: "He's done his job and we'll find him a good home. He might be in equestrian or showjumping or be a clerk of the course." The grey son of Bradbury's Luck won 14 of his 33 starts - highlighted by Gr1 victories in the Railway Stakes (twice) and Kingstown Town Classic - for $2.69 million prize money. He retires as the third-highest prize money earner in West Australian racing behind Northerly ($9.34m) and Scenic Shot ($3.09m).
