Premier success for Lucky Patch

Francis Lui and Zac Purton combined to win the G2 Premier Bowl at Sha Tin with Lucky Patch (NZ) (El Roca).

The Gerry Harvey-bred 5-year-old made it four wins from 14 starts in Hong Kong when striking the front down the straight and holding off Super Wealthy (Epaulette) and Stronger (Not A Single Doubt) to record a narrow win, his first at stakes level.

Lucky Patch was originally a $40,000 buy for GPI Racing, Healey Racing and Andrew Williams Bloodstock at the 2018 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale. He raced as Paleontologist in Australia, winning both of his starts for trainer Billy Healey.

He is out of Gould (Danehill Dancer {Ire}), who is a three-quarter sister to Australian Listed winner Spitz (Danehill {USA}).

The Tony Millard-trained Panfield (Chi) (Lookin At Lucky {Chi}) won the G2 Sha Tin Trophy for jockey Karis Teetan.
