DIAMONDS R Makes a Winning Return to the Races

Last seen finishing on the board in her stakes debut in September, DIAMONDS R make a triumphant return to the track with a front-winning, 2 1/4-length allowance score. The 3-year-old filly by ALTERNATION broke alertly from post three to grab the lead early. She was pressured from the inside to only maintain 1 /2-length lead, but eventually proved best and pulled away inside the eighth pole for the victory going 5 1/2 furlongs at Emerald Downs against stakes horses. In her race prior to her stakes effort, DIAMONDS R was the easiest of winners taking a six-furlong Maiden Special Weight by a dominating 11 1/2 lengths (pictured). Lifetime record: 5-2-0-0, $27,675. O-George Todaro. B-Nicholas M. Lotz. T-Tom Wenzel.
