Mapperley Graduate Chuck A Luck won the Mornington Guineas in a desperate finish nosing out Power Scheme in the final stride to register his first victory in Australia.
Transferred to the Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young stable after a promising spring 3yo campaign in New Zealand which included a 2nd to NZ Derby winner Sherwood Forest in the Gr.3 War Decree Stakes and a solid 6th behind boom 3yo Catalyst in the Gr.1 2000 Guineas.
Running an encouraging 3rd on his Australian debut, Chuck a Luck was sent out favourite in the 3yo feature event and his brilliant effort to win showed he has a lot more to offer in the Autumn. The stable holds him in high regard and believes he can continue to make good improvement with the Gr.1 South Australian Derby his likely target.
Bred by our good clients C & R Walker, A Baldwin, A P Beachen, and H & K Rice, Chuck A Luck was born and raised on the rolling hills of Mapperley. Sold through Mapperley Stud’s Book 3 draft in 2018, the Niagara colt out of the mare Boomchuckalucka sold to Michael Pitman for $25,000.
