Lucifer’s Reward started his career in style as with victory as a 2YO at Moonee Valley and his Sandown victory comes first up after competing in the $1 Million Showdown. Lucifer’s Reward was bred by loyal Reward For Effort supporter, Andy O’Shea who has bred other notable Reward For Effort performers: Petite’s Reward ($300k earner), Blondie (Stakes Winner) and Rewarding Laughter (City Winner). Andy is sending the dam of Lucifer’s Reward back to Reward in 2019.
Rewards other winner on Wednesday was Kerema Mori who lead all the way to win by three lengths at Ipswich. Replay
Congratulations to breeder Shane Haines who has also supported Reward heavily throughout his career.
