Trained by Nigel Blackiston at Ballarat, Accordingly is out of the Golan mare L’Accord.

L’Accord is also a sibling to the dam of the Gr.2 Empire Rose Stakes and Group One placegetter Zanna.

Ocean Park completed a winning double at Donald when Miss Damita successfully followed Accordingly’s lead.

Prepared by Mick Price, the four-year-old came off a month’s break to score over 2000 metres and her second career victory.

A $58,000 weanling buy at Karaka for United Syndications, she is a daughter of Miss Jaydeejay – also by Golan.

Miss Jaydeejay is a sister to the Gr.1 VRC Derby winner Kibbutz.
