2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Won By Miracles Of Life – Results

February 25th, 2013

Miracles Of Life has won the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes in what was clearly the feel good story of the autumn.

The two-year-old won the race by one and a half lengths ahead of Fast ‘N’ Rocking, who finished second, and Godiva Rock, who placed in third.

Miracles Of Life has now won all four of her race starts and has earned more than $715,000 in prize money.

Trainer Daniel Clarken was thrilled that Miracles Of Life was able to pull off the win, especially since they had opted to keep Adelaide apprentice jockey Lauren Stojakovic aboard the filly.

“What a ride. She caned them,” Clarken said.

“We were under enormous pressure to change riders, but we kept the faith and everyone is a winner now.

“And that little filly. She is only small, but she gets the job done.”

Clarken feels that Miracles Of Life will probably skip the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 6, 2013.

However, he stopped short of ruling out the race altogether.

“She did so well in (prior to the Blue Diamond Stakes) that we had to rethink,” he said.

“It might happen again. It will depend on the horse, for sure.

“I think it might be too much and will probably recommend the paddock to the owners, but the door is certainly not closed (on the Slipper).

“It’s up to her to tell me.”
