By Jeune out of Iota of Luck
It is incredibly hard to put into words how all involved feel about this horse. He has given us so much, the thrill of a lifetime, the privilege to be involved in the career of a top line racehorse, so many memories of victories and celebrations with family and friends and of course significant financial reward. For Jake, John and Sharon(owners of Iota Of Luck dam of Alcopop) the chance to start their own legacy in the breeding barn and on the track. For Doug and Helen Gillam who bred Iota of Luck just rewards for a lifetime of breeding and racing horses and satisfaction that their encouragement had resulted in Jake beginning his involvement in racing on a high . Above all Alcopop has taught us to dream and proven in to us that these dreams that seem so far away can be realised and lived. We nominated him for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups when he had won only three races. Clearly we were dreaming and we still are.
