First Crop 2YO DIAMONDS R Romps by 11 1/2-Lengths in MSW

Making just her third career start, DIAMONDS R broke on top and never looked back to win this six-furlong Maiden Special Weight by an incredible 11 1/2 lengths. The 2-year-old filly from the first crop of ALTERNATION broke well from post five to the grab the lead and was 2 1/2 lengths in front after the first quarter. By the time they reached the top of the stretch, DIAMONDS R was five lengths clear of the heavy favorite and continued to widen the margin to the wire racing at Emerald Downs. She was bred in Kentucky out of Epitome of a Lady, by Poteem, and was the second winner of the day by ALTERNATION. Lifetime record: 3-1-0-0, $10,375. O-George Todaro. B-Nicholas M. Lotz. T-Tom Wenzel.
