Diamanté 

A gorgeous three year old filly with good size to her, she hails from an excellent family and is by the exciting sire Big Bad Bob. We were very impressed with her excellent movement and thought she was one of the very best fillies on offer at the yearling sales in 2015. We were delighted to get her for €40,000. She races for one of our most successful syndicates Capture the Moment.

Big Bad Bob was a tough sound horse who won multiple races at two and raced until he was five winning several stakes races. Big Bad Bob began his stud career at a small private stud and from very limited chances made an immediate impact with his progeny, and as a result is now covering many more mares. His progeny have proven to be tough consistent performers. This filly traces back to La Lorgnette a champion filly in her own right but perhaps best known as the mother of European Champion Hawk Wing.

We have been delighted with her progress on the gallops and following a successful racecourse gallop at Lingfield she ran at Newmarket over seven furlongs as a two year old. Tom Queally rode her and felt she was a lovely prospect for next season as she strengthens up. She stayed on past a few rivals at the end of the seven furlong race and did her best work at the end of the race. She strengthened significantly for a break and has filled out nicely. Her return to action at Lingfield over a mile was disappointing, she didn’t handle the track and looked like she is ready for a longer trip.
