She has been promoted to winner of the Bright Shadow F&M Quality (1200m) run at Eagle Farm back in May.

The five-year-old mare finished second on the day but has now claimed the race win, as the winner Ellawisdom was disqualified after returning a positive swab.

A stewards inquiry was finalised recently.


Part-owner Paul Maguire, who also bred Avaladyluck, is delighted she now has a listed win on her pedigree. The win will enhance her value as a broodmare.

He said she was the first horse for two families he got involved in her ownership.

Avaladyluck has five wins and nine placings from 26 career starts, with prize meoney of more than $340,000.

Not bad for a $2500 purchase at a QTIS yearling sale.

Trainer Stuart Kendrick said it had been a big couple of weeks for connections.

He said the horse, which had run plenty of unlucky placings in her career, broke through two starts back at Doomben.

News then came through came through of Ellawisdom's disqualification, handing her another belated win.

"She's one of the most consistent horses in the stable and deserves that black type she now has on her pedigree." Kendrick said.
