BRADBURY’S LUCK’S outstanding up-and-coming sprinter Luckygray can give his sire his first G1 winner this weekend if luck falls his way during the running.

Luckygray, a 4YO gelding trained out of the Gino Poletti yard, has answered every challenge thrown at him this preparation, having won his last 3 starts in super impressive fashion, and he looks ready to take the next step to G1 grade on Saturday.

A winner of 6 of his 8 starts, the Bradbury’s Luck youngster looked right at home 3 weeks ago when he streeted a quality field in the G3 Asian Beau Stakes to win by an ever widening margin of 3.25 lengths.

“It was his first go in open company and he handled it with ease,” Poletti said. “He hasn’t missed a beat since that run and we really couldn’t be happier with him.

“Tomorrow’s assignment was always going to be tough, but it has been made even harder by drawing so poorly (barrier 14).

“All we can do is go out there and hope we have no bad luck in transit and can get a bit of cover during the run.

“There is usually a decent pace on in any $1million race, so if we can get a cart into as they are turning for home, and then clear galloping room once they starighten, I am sure ‘Lucky’ willl give them plenty to think about.

“I have said all along I think he will be abetter horse in 12 months time but when he is handling everything so easily at the moment you have to have a throw at the stumps in these big races.

“He has a very exciting future and he should give a really good sight tomorrow.”


JET SPUR had 2 very impressive victors last weekend in Queensland in the shape of Thefifthhole and Jam Fancy – with both of them appearing to have very bright futures.

Jam Fancy was making his debut at the Gold Coast for trainer Helen Page and, despite being a touch slow away, proved far superior to his opposition.

The 3YO had to be used up after being tardy from the gates but showed natural pace to race up just behind the speed. After peeling out from behind the leader the son of Jet Spur let go with a really good turn of foot and the race was over in the twinkling of an eye.

“Obviously we were thrilled with that effort,” Helen said after the race. “He has shown really good ability right from the start and it is exciting to have a horse with this much promise for an owner who has been as wonderful as Neil (Dickinson) has. Hopefully he will come though the run well and I am sure we can have him in town in the near future.”

The other “flying” Jet Spur last Saturday was the John Morrissey prepared 4YO Thefifthhole – who gave nothing else a look-in as he completely demolished a good class field at Eagle Farm.

Rider Larry Cassidy let him stroll to the lead and the strapping son of Jet Spur just continued to get further and further in front. Rounding the turn Cassidy almost had to  turn 180 degrees to find his rivals – who were all off the bit and struggling.

Thefifthhole just kept pounding on the pressure! He won very easily by almost 4 lengths! He ran time! This fellow has a very, very bright future in front of him now they have figured him out!
