At Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane on Saturday, former Glenlogan Park Stud & now Yarradale Stud-based stallion Bradbury's Luck (Redoute's Choice-Skating, by At Talaq) added a Group success when 5YO mare Col 'n' Lil (Bradbury's Luck-Jyler, by Street Cry) showed her fighting qualities when scoring a tough win in the $125,000 Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup (1600m) fo 3YO+, defeating Duca Valentinois & Elle Lou. Col 'n' Lil improved her record to 8 wins (including the Listed Weetwood Handicap) and 13 placings (including the Gr2 BRC The Roses & Listed BRC Tails Handicap) from 35 starts for $497,000 earnings. Trainer Ben Currie commented: "She's always been a good mare but she's racing even better now," he told Racing Queensland Webnews. "I thought she might be in trouble 50 metres out but she kept fighting."
