Lucky Chappy

An international sort of horse, Lucky Chappy has raced in Italy, American, Dubai, and Australia, though he was bred in Ireland. He ran second in both the El Camino Real and Virginia Derbies, and he was third in the 2012 Hollywood Derby. He is currently racing in Australia

Though Lucky Chappy is officially registered as bay, he is only partially so. In fact, he seems to be split, with his front legs and chest being mostly bay, but his middle and hind end displaying grey coloring. He also possess a “skunk tail”. His coloring is apparently inherited from his mother, stakes-winning British mare Germane, who has been described as “practically a zebra”
