Prince Lee Acres Farm Manager Doug Simon today told Trot Insider that Lucky Lady p,3,1:55 ($591,857), dam of star Ontario-based sire Camluck, has been humanely euthanized.

Simon explained that after consultation with the veterinarian, the decision was made to put the Striking Image mare down yesterday (Wednesday, November 10).

"She was 30 years old and was having trouble getting up and getting around," said Simon, who explained that Lucky Lady has been buried at the farm, which is located in Uxbridge, Ont.

"She was a classy mare right until the end," explained Simon, who said that her legacy at the farm will continue via her one daughter and three granddaughters that are still there.

During her 54-race career on the track, Lucky Lady won 16 times, finished second on 14 occasions and notched seven thirds. She banked a total of $591,857 in purses and took her mark of 1:55 at age three over the Meadowlands Racetrack.

She delivered 14 foals during her time in the breeding shed, most notably Camluck, the son of Cam Fella that went on to be an accomplished millionaire on the track and a star in the breeding shed. Camluck has sired over 2,000 horses, almost 1,600 of which have raced. In total, Camluck-sired horses have earned just under $175 million in purses.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Lucky Lady.
