Lucky Sam Wins Independence Trophy

The tranquil partly cloudy Borrowdale afternoon belonged to the Imperial Stride gelding Lucky Sam who flew past the finishing post in a time of 1min 35.38 sec to win the 2015 Original Genuine Lotto Since 1999 Independence Trophy race.

Trainer Bridget Stidolph had every reason to smile for this lucky boy; “Lucky Sam is a classy horse I knew he can do it and he did, he came through today and did it for me.

“It was a very strong field and it’s a field he is going to be taking later on at the big races, obviously Super Trouper is a big danger, Equina, Glorious Jet and also strong stable companions,” added Stidolph.

The combination of jockey Randall Simons and Lucky Sam has earned a good track record and has done well for the yard and according to trainer Stidolph it seems these two are going to continue together; “Hopefully we will be able to do that, you never know what happens between now and then but hopefully Randall will be able to come up and ride Lucky Sam in his next starts.”

The victorious Simons spoke highly of his partner Lucky Sam, “Last time we needed his run, he came out of the pens today full of running and it’s always great to be in the winner’s enclosure and especially winning a feature race.”

The fancied Glorious Jet was scratched at start for delaying proceedings after dislodging apprentice jockey Wesley Marwing and bolting.

The 2nd spot went to Killa Man ridden by Fanie Chambers, trailed by Menacing in 3rd and Equina found her feet and settled in 4th spot.

Owned by Munyaradzi Kajese and Rob Davenport the gelding Lucky Sam stamped his name into history annals following in the gallops of past winners like; Funden Hall who first won it in 1990, Latin Eagle the1991victor and the celebrated; Stay Alert took it in 1998.

The 1600m Independence Trophy race is kindly sponsored¬† by the President’s Fund and had a total stakes of US$12 600.
