Dual-purpose stallion Ultimately Lucky dies

DUAL-PURPOSE stallion Ultimately Lucky was put down on Wednesday night after suffering from colic. He was 15.

The son of Kris and Prix de la Salamandre winner Oczy Czarnie had been transferred from Haras de Grandcamp to Haras du Grand Chesnaie for the 2011 breeding season.

Ultimately Lucky won six of his 11 starts for trainer Jean-Paul Gallorini, including the Group 3 La Coupe at four, in which he beat the smart Native Justice.

Retired to stud in 2002, his best Flat representative is last year's Listed Prix Belle de Nuit winner Wysiwyg Lucky.

Over jumps he has sired French Grade 2-winning chaser Lucky Du Berlais and Nono Le Sage, a bumper winner for Henry Daly who has won three handicap hurdles for David Pipe after being purchased for £55,000.
