No 2014 Railway Stakes for Spelled Lucky Hussler

The Perth Summer Racing Carnival bid of Lucky Hussler has officially been ruled out with the horse sent to the spelling paddock and scratched from the Railway Stakes 2014 entries.

Wangoom-based trainer Darren Weir at the start of the week announced his decision to spell his Husson gelding on the back of a strong second when only a long neck away second behind Hucklebuck in last Saturday’s Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m).

Winner of the Group 3 Moonga Stakes (1400m) before that on Melbourne Cup Day by a blistering three and a half lengths, the five-year-old put in a career best run in the Emirates Stakes.

Despite this, Weir was keen to skip a trip to Western Australia for the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) on November 22 at Ascot Racecourse.

Then connections of the horse decided to throw in a late entry for the Perth feature, Weir calling Lucky Hussler a “long shot” chance to accept.

He has since moved from a long shot to a no shot with Weir announcing the final decision on Twitter.

“Lucky Hussler won’t be going to Perth. Goes for a well-deserved spell. $250k in 5 starts with us,” Weir tweeted.

An autumn return where the possibilities are endless for the $646,600 earner is now on the schedule for 2015.

Lucky Hussler was being kept safe in Railway Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au sitting on the second line of betting at $6.

He’s since been withdrawn from the markets with Mick Burles’s Tasmanian galloper The Cleaner the clear $5.50 favourite coming off a third in the Emirates Stakes from November 8.
