A short tribute to Lucky Lodge following his 15th career win at Newcastle last night.
Home bred at Northgate Lodge and born in 2010, he ran in the Brocklesby, the first race possible of his 2yo season. He won his 2yo maiden in May of that year. Lucky Lodge has raced every year of his life and he won yesterday at the age of 10, his second win of the year. That was his 122nd start
Not only that, he has WON at least one race, EVERY year in the 9 seasons he has competed. A total of 15 wins. He has also finished 2nd no less than 21 times and 3rd on 16 occasions.
A truly great servant and friend to the yard. There is a photo link below
