Lucky Chucky's first date is Graceful Touch
« Return to News
On Valentine’s Day (Monday) the 2011 breeding season began and stallions were busy courting. Among them was Lucky Chucky, a strong contender for 2010 Trotter of the Year honors, and the very first mare he was bred to was the 2010 Trotting Broodmare of the Year Graceful Touch.
On Wednesday Graceful Touch headed back for a second date with Lucky Chucky. Lucky Chucky is managed by Perretti Farms and stands at stud at Winbak Farm in New York, about a 3-3 ½ hour van ride from Perretti’s New Jersey headquarters, where Graceful Touch resides. Graceful Touch was accompanied to New York by Echo Hanover (Balanced Image-Armbro Éclair ), who will have her first date with Lucky Chucky on Wednesday.
Graceful Touch’s 2010 Trotting Broodmare of the Year award was earned because of the accomplishments of her son Muscle Massive 3, 1:51 ($1,239,138), who won the 2010 Hambletonian, and her daughter Thatsnotmyname 2, 1:55, who captured last year’s Merrie Annabelle. Her first foal was the fast juvenile Muscle Mass 2, 1:53.4. She has a yearling filly by Muscles Yankee named Forever Graceful who was bought privately last December by Al Libfeld and Marvin Katz.
