Autumn campaign for Lucky Country

Tough miler Lucky Country has a two run Autumn campaign aimed at improving her broodmare value with futher black types races.

“She’s a talented horse who’s already run second in two Group 3 races.” says trainer Stephen Marsh.

“We gave her a break after the Group 3 Lowland Stakes over 2100 metres as we felt she didn’t get that distance and it took a lot out of her. She’s has freshened up well and her work has been very sharp.”

Lucky Country will resume on the 27th of April at Te Rapa in the Group 3 Windsor Park Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes – a $70,000 1200 metres race won by Go Racing’s Silky Red Boxer back in 2003.

Says Racing Manager, Albert Bosma, “She’s really aimed at the weight for age Rotorua Stakes over 1400 metres for fillies and mares on 11 May but can sprint well fresh this Saturday. With both races being black type races they are important for her value if she can run in the top three.”
