Blue Diamond Stakes 2012 – Samaready Leads Betting Odds

February 23rd, 2012

The betting markets are beginning to fall into place for the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield this Saturday February 25, 2012.

Samaready is favourite to win the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes at Luxbet, and is paying odds of $2.10 at Luxbet.

The filly has won both her previous race starts and has earned nearly $120,000 in prize money.

The closest horse to Samaready in the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes betting is presently The Travelling Man, who is paying odds of $10 at Luxbet.

The Travelling Man won his last start in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview on January 26, 2012, by 1.3 lengths.

Jimando rounds out the top three favourites for the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes at Luxbet, and is paying $13.

The two-year-old colt finished third in his last start behind Mama’s Choice in the Listed Chairman’s Stakes at Caulfield.

Trainer Peter Snowden is asking punters not to forget Applegate, who is paying odds of $21 to win the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes.

Applegate finished a disappointing eighth in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude for fillies two weeks ago.

“She blew the start. It’s just one of those things that happen so you move on and look forward to Saturday,” Melbourne stable manager Paul Snowden said.

“She’s probably been our number one flag-bearer for the race so I wouldn’t be dropping off her at all.

“I assumed Kerrin (McEvoy) was going to go for the colt (Rusambo), but obviously the barrier draw has swung him and he’s chosen the filly.

“Hopefully he knows how good they are, he’s been riding them. They worked well Tuesday together.”
