Purchased for $300,000 from Ridgmont Farm, he is faultless in every respect and comes equipped with an outstanding constitution and impeccable pedigree.
Offered as Lot 352 at Inglis Classic, he is the first living foal from the speedy 5-time-winning Stravinsky mare Crystal Fountain (NZ). Four of her career wins were achieved in succession (between 1100 and 1221 metres) and she was stakes placed in Victoria on multiple occasions.
His dam is a three-quarter sister to Champion 3YO Filly Serenade Rose, winner of the G1 VRC Oaks, G1 Australian Oaks, G1 Arrowfield Stud Stakes etc.
A true Champion in his own right, Justify took out the highly esteemed American Triple Crown and made history when retiring to stud as the first Triple Crown winner to remain unbeaten.
He’s the Leading First Season Sire in Australia and his progeny include $2 million Inglis Millennium and G3 Widden Stakes winner Learning To Fly, plus first crop northern hemisphere Group 1 winner Arabian Lion.
From Justify’s northern and southern hemisphere crops, he has sired 11 individual stakes horses and boasts a phenomenal 8.4% stakes winners/runners strike rate.
Duncan and trainer John Thompson have combined with immense success. Group 1-winning Champion Filly First Seal, multiple stakes winner Purple Sector, Magic Millions winner Primitivo and exciting 3yo Earl Of Devon are just a few examples of this partnership’s successes.
