Luck San returned to Australia in winning style at Sportingbet Park on Wednesday with a strong win in the $30,000 Sportingbet Handicp (78) over 1200m.
Luck San (4 g Encosta de Lago – Enrika’s Gift, by Orpen) began his career as ‘Happy Patrick’ in Australia, finishing second to Sincero in the Gosford Guineas (Listed) ¬†before transferring to Hong Kong.
Yesterday was his first start back in Australia and he proved too good for Smokin Joey (Encosta de Lago) in a quinella for the Coolmore stallion.
“He played up a bit in the barriers and took a while to get running, but he really kicked in the straight and put them away very easily,‚Äù said winning jockey Dwayne Dunn.
“We’ve always had a big opinion of him right back to when he won at Moonee Valley, so it’s good to see him come back and win again.‚Äù
