The boom filly Nakeeta Jane stamped her credentials as a serious contender this Autumn by taking out the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes on Saturday 15thFebruary 2019, at Royal Randwick.
Nakeeta Jane (So You Think/Lustre Lady) sprinted superbly fresh over an unsuitable trip in 1200m, unleashing an explosive final furlong to run down tearaway Madame Rouge. Ridden to perfection by jockey Josh Parr it was hard to believe that this was only her fourth race start ever.
She ran third in the group 1 Flight Stakes last year and has come back much more mature, both physically and mentally. To do what she did on such limited experience shows that this Oaks bound filly is very special and will provide plenty of excitement on the way through to her target race.
Congratulations to the Towell Family (of GT Park Spelling Farm), may we have many more wins in store.
