LUCKY BREAK
Muhtafal (USA) - Moving On Up (SAF) by Jallad (USA)

Not even the driving rain could deter a dogged Athandiwe Mgudlwa from winning the eigth at Greyville Sunday aboard the gutsy Backworth-bred Lucky Break for trainer Tony Rivalland and owner Mary Liley.

Lucky Break, a half brother to Listed Nkosazana Stakes victress, Raise The Bar, is the grandson of Eternal Dancer from the family of Chattaronga.

The four-year-old colt is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2012 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

In the previous race, fellow Backworth-bred Down Sir Down (Count Dubois - Feather Bed) contested an extremely tight finish, missing out by a nose to place fourth.
