2013 Blue Diamond Stakes – Final Field & Barrier Draw

February 19th, 2013

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes, which will run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 23, 2013.

A full field of 16 runners have accepted for the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes, however, there will be no emergencies for the race.

Miracles Of Life’s camp elected to pay the $55,000 late entry fee to include the filly in the final field.

Her chances of winning have only improved after she drew barrier one for the race in this morning’s barrier draw.

The two-year-old has won all three of her previous race starts and has earned more than $115,000 in prize money.

The Not A Single Doubt filly won her first two starts by a combined margin of 14.5 lengths in Adelaide, before winning the Listed Blue Diamond Preview at Caulfield racecourse by four and a half lengths last start.

Miracles Of Life will be the only runner for Morphettville trainer Daniel Clarken and will be the first Blue Diamond Stakes ride for Adelaide-based apprentice jockey Lauren Stojakovic.

All in all, four of the 16 Blue Diamond Stakes runners were late entries into the field, including Dissident, Metastasio and Montsegur.

Also included in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes final field is Guelph, who is trained by Peter Snowden.

Guelph has won two of his three race starts and has earned more than $160,000 in prize money during her short career.

The Exceed And Excel filly won her most recent race start in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude at Caulfield by one and a half lengths in front of Montsegur.

Guelph will jump from barrier 13 in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes and will be ridden by top stable jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the race.

The widest barrier of 16 has been drawn by last start winner Casquets or this weekend’s race.

Casquets, who will be ridden by jockey Michael Rodd, won the Listed Talindert Stakes at Flemington last Saturday and will back-up seven days later in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes.
