Sparkle Of Red Diamonds At Ipswich

Jul 05, 2014

After a little over a month away from the races, three-year-old Red Dazzler filly Red Diamonds contested the Schweppes QTIS Three-Year-Old Benchmark 65 over 1200m at Ipswich on Friday July 4.

With leading Group One Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Chris Munce in the saddle, our filly settled in a mid-field position in the run and was produced just at the right time to snatch victory, scoring by a short half head from Treasure Map with one-and-a-quarter lengths to Dragon Master in third.

Having now had seven starts for only one result outside the top five, the impressive filly appreciated the step up to the 1200m today after a last start second at the Gold Coast over 1100m.

Raced by Mrs R L Turnbull, Ms M A Blayden, Mrs W P Amerio & Mrs K A Synott, the filly (pictured in the orange blinkers) was purchased from the 2013 Magic Million QTIS Yearling Sale for only $15,000 and has already returned her connections double her purchase price – with the likelihood of more to come!

Congratulations to the connections of the very consistent filly, and we look forward to joining you in the winners enclosure in the near future.
