A win too good to refuse!

Jun 02, 2010

On a night of drink, in joyful company of  family and friends, Rob and Pat Heron named Lucky Deluchi.

They decided on a gangster's name - they sound good- but which one.

"My daughter looked up my grand-daughter's gangster name on the web and it was Deluchi," Rob said.

"We justed added lucky in front of it."

Lucky Deluchi has proven just that for the Herons having won three of nine starts.

Its latest win was when running opponents off their legs at Ipswich on May 26.

The Immovable Option-Bridle Excuse (by White Bride) bay crossed from barrier 8 and that was all they saw of him.

Jockey Paul Hammersley rated the gelding perfectly and it won easily.

Starting $7, Lucky Deluchi beat Miss Tennessee by three and a half lengths with Sequaboomwa back in third.

Bruce believes Lucky Deluchi should stick to sprinting distances.

"Last time out I was thinking he may stay but I don't think that now," Bruce said.

Lucky Deluchi three wins have come when he has been fresh.

The Heron's bred the now three-year-old after buying Bridle Excuse for $2000.

"He has raced against decent horses like Sarge In Charge and Femina Fashion," Rob said.

Bridle Excuse was average on the track and Ron hoped she would make a broodmare.

Lucky Deluchi is the best of them to date and the mare is in foal to Craiglee Stud stallion Warhead (Viscount-Camena).
