Miracles Of Life Aimed at 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes After Preview Win

January 29th, 2013

Miracles Of Life is the red hot favourite for the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes after winning the Listed Blue Diamond Preview for fillies at Caulfield last weekend.

The Not A Single Doubt filly from Adelaide had won both her previous race starts back home in South Australia, however, scored her first east coast win in the $120,000 race.

Miracles Of Life won the race by an incredible four and a half lengths ahead of Diamond Glow, who placed second, and Swing Vote, who finished third.

Trainer Daniel Clarken could not believe just how well Miracles Of Life performed in the 2013 Blue Diamond Preview.

“That was crazy,” Clarken said after the race.

“We’ll get her home and see how everything goes but it will be straight into the Diamond now. This is bizarre. Berserk, just berserk.”

Regular jockey Lauren Stojakovic was aboard Miracles Of Life for her 2013 Blue Diamond Preview win and she is hopeful she will be given the ride in the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes.

“You keep the faith,” she said.

“I was always told to believe in myself and that I could do it.

You don’t become a great jockey without getting the opportunities and I’m grateful to Dan and (owner) Iris (O’Farrell) for that opportunity and helping me believe in myself.

“Hopefully it will be hard for them to take me off now.

“The owners and Daniel (Clarken, trainer) were all really rapt with the win and how I handled myself.

“If I’m given the chance it would be awesome.”

The 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes will take place at Caulfield racecourse on February 23, 2013.
