One to Watch – Pakenham

Tara Madgwick - Monday June 24

Lindsay Park Racing have had a strong season with their juveniles and added a new winner to the tally on Monday with a debut winner by Justify (USA) at Pakenham.

Sporting the familiar blue and pink colours of the Devitt and Gordon families, Ndola was not expected to trouble the hot favourite Princess Montecito, but she was outclassed when Ndola opened up to win by two and a half lengths for Luke Currie.

“He jumped well and took up a nice spot, but was a little bit worried first time with the horses around him, but when he got room he showed a good turn of foot and was soft on the line,” Currie said.


Ndola is a homebred for Peter Devitt and partners as was his mother the Group III winning sprinter Hear the Chant, sired by another Devitt and partners homebred in Nicconi.

Hear the Chant has made a great start to her stud career with her first three foals to race all being winners and she has yearling and weanling fillies to follow by Shamus Award and is due to foal to Blue Point (IRE) this spring.

Justify will not return to Coolmore Australia this spring following his extraordinary success in the Northern Hemisphere, so there will be considerable interest in his Australian foals born this year with 188 mares covered in 2023 a fee of $77,000.
