Northern Target For The Diamond One
The Diamond One (Tale of the Cat-The Jewel, by O'Reilly) is in line for a second shot at the Gr1 Haunui Farm WFA Classic on February 27, reports NZ Racing Desk. The south's leading mare, who finished sixth in the Otaki race behind Nashville two years ago, is likely to head north following her third successive win in Saturday's Gr3 White Robe Lodge Handicap at Wingatui. The Diamond One carried 57kg and her future will now focus on weight-for-age racing. The Diamond One is the fourth foal to race from NZ 1,000 Guineas winner The Jewel, dam also of multiple stakes placed mare The Glitzy One (Flying Spur) and talented 5YO The Bold One (Fastnet Rock).
