DIAMONDS R Gives ALTERNATION His Second Stakes Winner on the Weekend
DIAMONDS R became ALTERNATION’s second blacktype winner in two days after she edged away late to win the Irish Day S. by a length. This 3-year-old filly broke alertly to stalk the pace early racing 1 1/16 miles. By the time they reached the top of the stretch DIAMONDS R had moved up to take a slight lead, then battled with the runner-up through the lane to edge away near the wire at Emerald Downs. She won her seasonal debut in May, after more than a seven-month lay-off, and has finished on the board in stakes in her two other starts this year. Last year at two, DIAMONDS R won a six-furlong Maiden Special Weight by a dominating 11 1/2 lengths in her third career start. Lifetime record: 8-3-0-0, $62,288. O-George Todaro. B-Nicholas M. Lotz. T-Tom Wenzel.
