Brickfield Boy retires

Wednesday, 18 January 2012

Brickfield Boy in action in Arezzo in 2010. Photo provided by Old Lodge Stud. Brickfield Boy – ridden by British rider Geoff Luckett – will be retired after a successful career. Named after his owner Old Lodge Stud’s then stud in Newmarket, he has been a fantastic horse for them to own. Brickfield Boy (Indoctro x Voltaire) has proved himself to be an outstanding and consistent horse with wins in international speed classes to international Grand Prix’s. In 2008 he won the opening and closing classes at Olympia, and was also second in the 1.50m class and 9th in the Grand Prix. Brickfield Boy has also won international classes at Hickstead, Windsor and Arezzo – as well as numerous national Grand Prix’s in Britain.

Old Lodge Stud thanks the staff at Old Lodge for raising Brickfield Boy from a foal, Mennell Watson who produced him, Georgie Crumley for his Young Rider Years and finally Geoff Luckett for winning so many classes with the now 15 year old KWPN-gelding.

Corrina Duncan from Old Lodge Stud says; “Personally I am lucky enough to claim to be the first person to jump him. Having easily popped a cross pole my steering went a little off course and he thought the next jump was the big square bale in front of us which he ballooned over.  Sadly for my pride I didn’t quite make it. After this he was wisely sent to a proper rider!”
