Rock Of Gibraltar Adds US Black-Type
Coolmore's 7-time Gr1-winning shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a US black-type success when 4YO mare Diamondrella (Rock Of Gibraltar-Tap Your Feet, by Dixieland Band) made it 4 successive wins with victory by a nose in the US$110,000 Listed Xtra Heat Handicap (6 furlongs on turf) for fillies & mares at Belmont Park in New York. Diamondrella (ridden by Rajiv Maragh for trainer Angel Penna) defeated 5YO mare Smart And Fancy (Not For Love-Substitute Teacher, by Shelter Half) & fellow 4YO mare Sheets (Scatmandu-One Hot Minute, by Relaunch). At her previous start Diamondrella also won September's Listed Positive Gal Stakes (6 furlongs on turf) at Belmont Park & overall now has 5 wins & 3 placings from 13 starts.
