Lucky Deluchi leads from start to finsh

Feb 20, 2012

Lucky Deluchi made it win number six on Friday night by taking out the Benchmark 80 Handicap at the Sunshine Coast.

Given a perfect front running ride by jockey Eddie Wilkinson, the five year old travelled comfortably throughout the run and never looked in doubt in the 1000m event.

A son of Immovable Option, Lucky Deluchi returned to the Hill stable late last year after almost nine months in the paddock.  Trainer Bruce Hill was thrilled with his return to form  "His first up run was great, he only knocked up the last little bit so I was pretty confident going into Friday nights race" he stated.
