How is the idea of luck prsented in the Rocking Horse Winner?

Was the boy in the story Lucky?
I do think he was. i THINK the fact that he had a desire to accomplish what he set out to do he was sucessful. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH LUCK

One can be either lucky or unlucky. Both are considered forms of luck! Which do you think of from the perspective of the mother? the son? the others?
