Ascot Race Results – Luckygray Is Railway Stakes 2011 Winner

November 21st, 2011

Luckygray won the $1 million Railway Stakes at Ascot Racecourse last Saturday November 19, 2011.

The four-year-old gelding won the race on a protest against original race winner He’s Remarkable, who shifted out considerably on the home turn, causing interference against Luckygray.

Jockey Shaun O’Donnell lodged the protest after Luckygray finished second by just a long neck.

“It was unfortunate the incident happened,” O’Donnell said.

“My thoughts were that we should have won and I was a shattered man coming back in.

“I didn’t know who did it (the interference) and I told the trainer Gino Poletti we should look at the film.

“I’m happy. I’ve won a Group One before but this is my first win in a million dollar race.”

This was the first Group 1 win for Perth local Luckygray, who has now won all four of his race starts this preparation.

After his Railway Stakes 2011 win, Luckygray has now won seven of his nine career starts and earned more than $850,000 in prize money.
