Stakes Winner DIAMONDS R Draws off by Five Lengths
Blacktype winner DIAMONDS R set the pace and rolled to a five-length win in this one mile allowance score. A 4-year-old filly from the first crop of ALTERNATION broke alertly from post two to grab the early lead. She continued to lead the way opening up by three lengths heading into the far turn. Never really challenged, DIAMONDS R continued to widen her margin to the wire in this impressive win at Emerald Downs. Last year, she won the Irish Day S. (pictured), was runner-up in the Washington Oaks, and finished on the board in two other stakes, from six starts at three. At two, DIAMONDS R was an 11 1/2-length Maiden Special Weight winner in her third career start. Lifetime record: 14-4-1-1, $87,050. O-George Todaro and David M. Cordova. B-Nicholas M. Lotz. T-Tom Wenzel.
