Luckygray Wins 2012 Kingston Town Classic – Race Results

December 11th, 2012

Luckygray has won the 2012 Kingston Town Classic at Ascot Racecourse last Saturday December 8, 2012.

The five-year-old gelding won the race by more than a length ahead of Mr Moet, who finished second and God Has Spoken, who passed the post in third.

Luckygray has now won 12 of his 18 race starts and has earned more than $1.77 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Bradbury’s Luck gelding turned the tables on Mr Moet, who had beaten him to the post in the Group 1 Railway Stakes at the same track in their previous race start.

Trainer Gino Poletti was thrilled that Luckygray was finally able to win a Group 1 race on his own merits.

“He’s just trained on so well… I thought the horse should win and he’s a lot better than he was last year,” Poletti said.

“Coming back to weight-for-age also was a big help.”

Poletti now plans to send Luckygray on a spell before planning a big autumn racing carnival in Sydney and Melbourne.

“He’ll be in the paddock tomorrow morning, give him two to three weeks, and we’ll plot a campaign from there,” he said.

“I’m thinking races in both Melbourne and Sydney, but we’ll just wait and see.”
