bullish luck

“Emotions were running high in the Sha Tin parade ring yesterday (13 March 2016, photo) as champion sprinter Lucky Nine was farewelled by Hong Kong racing fans.”
The nine-year-old will move to Australia, where he will join fellow Hong Kong stars Silent Witness, Bullish Luck, Sacred Kingdom and California Memory at Living Legends.

Trainer Caspar Fownes said: “I really love him, he’s very special to me and my family and all the fans of Hong Kong … He’s been a great racehorse with so much spirit and heart and character.”

Regular jockey Brett Prebble said: “I don’t mind admitting I got a little choked up … It was a lovely tribute, it was a fitting send-off for him. It’s a great way for him to go out and I can’t wait to visit him regularly.”
