01/06/02 Lindsay Park Win Own Race in Adelaide
In a fitting result a Tony McEvoy trained galloper won this afternoon’s $22,000 Indian Danehill at Lindsay Park Handicap (1800m) at Cheltenham Park in Adelaide.

La Missionaire, a daughter of the former Lindsay Park Stud based stallion Military Plume, proved a touch too strong for the city galloper The Ex Files in the 1800 metre event.

It was the second straight win for the four-year-old mare at Cheltenham Park. In between those two wins she had two starts, one of which netted a handy third.

With Simon Price riding confidently La Missionaire proved too strong after racing close to the pace before knuckling down for a battle with The Ex Files, last season’s most consistent performer in the metropolitan area.

There were some anxious moments immediately after the race when the rider of the runner-up Paul Gatt, a former Lindsay Park apprentice, fired in a protest for alleged interference. It was subsequently dismissed by stewards.

Indian Danehill, a Northern Hemisphere Group One winning son of Danehill, is shuttling for his first Australian season in 2002 and will be standing at Lindsay Park Stud, Angaston.

La Missionaire's win wasn't the only success for Lindsay Park at Cheltenham today. Juvenile galloper She's My Baby impressively won the second race, while her stablemate Madam Dehereos finished third.

The stable also had a winner at Sandown in Melbourne when Lance Corporal proved too classy in the Toolambool Hurdle.
