Bullish Luck is a famous Hong Kong based racehorse.
Bred in Kentucky, he was sold by his breeders at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale to Gordon Smyth who named him “Al Moughazel” and sent him to Newmarket for training under Pip Payne. He was later sold to Wong Wing-Keung of Hong Kong, and his name was changed to Bullish Luck. In his first few years of racing, the colt met with only modest success.
At age five he won the Group I 2004 Hong Kong Gold Cup and finished second in the Hong Kong Cup.
In 2005 he won the Champions Mile at Sha Tin Racecourse and in the process put an end to the seventeen-race win streak of stablemate Silent Witness. In 2006, Bullish Luck won his second Champions Mile, and won the Yasuda Kinen. He was voted Hong Kong Horse of the Year in 2006. He earned the $1 million bonus given to any horse who wins two legs of the four-race Asian Mile Challenge.
On 31 March 2007, in the Dubai World Cup at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, Bullish Luck raced for the first time on dirt, finishing third behind Invasor.
