A missed trip to Brisbane for a stakes race has turned into victory for Lucky For All

A missed trip to Brisbane for a stakes race has turned into victory for Lucky For All at Caulfield.

Lucky For All was booked on a flight from Melbourne on Thursday night to run in the Group Three Rough Habit Plate at Doomben on Saturday, but the flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems.

Fortunately for trainer Darren Weir and connections of Lucky For All the three-year-old was also an acceptor in the Le Pine Funerals Handicap (2000m) at Caulfield.

Backed from $5.50 into $4.40, Lucky For All, under Jye McNeil, defeated his stablemate, the $1.95 favourite Furrion by three lengths with Mahamedeis ($10) a short-head away third.

The three placegetters are all Brisbane bound with the Group One Queensland Derby at Doomben on June 9 their target.

Lucky For All’s managing part-owner Brad Spicer said the gelding still does a lot wrong noting there was plenty of upside to come.

He said it probably worked out for the better that he didn’t head north on Saturday.

“He’s had a nice win down here and he didn’t have to travel, but I didn’t think there was much between the two races quality-wise,” Spicer said.

“I thought this may have been a bit harder with Furrion and Mahamedeis engaged.

“I’d say he’ll definitely go up north now as I think Darren wants to take him away and get him to grow up a bit.”

Spicer said the Grand Prix Stakes at Doomben on May 26 was likely to be Lucky For All’s next start.

“Hopefully we can hold him together and get him up to Brisbane for the Derby,” Spicer said.

Lucky For All’s victory was Weir’s third of the day after wins with Platinum Angel in the Rod Fenwick Handicap and Jaws Of Steel in the Heritage Finance Handicap.
