At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, triple Gr1-winning stallion Husson (Hussonet-Villa Elisa, by Roy) added a Group race success when 8YO bay gelding Lucky Hussler (Husson-Talaq Dancer, by Black Hawk) made a welcome return to the winner's circle after an hiatus of nearly 12 months when bounding clear for a powerful win in the $200,000 Gr2 Crystal Mile (1600m) for 3YO+, defeating Religify & It's Somewhat. Lucky Hussler improved his record to 10 wins (including the Gr1 Toorak Handicap, Gr1 William Reid Stakes, Gr3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes, Gr3 Moonga Stakes, Gr3 Vo Rogue Plate & Gr3 BRC George Moore Stakes) and 9 placings (including the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes, Gr1 Emirates Stakes, Gr2 Queensland Guineas, Listed Headquarters Tavern Stakes & Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes) from 46 starts for $2,135,100 in earnings. Consigned by Monarch Stud, Lucky Hussler was a $100,000 purchase by Valley View Heights Management Services Pty Ltd at the 2011 Magic Millions Yearling Sale on the Gold Coast.
