Diamond Earth Wins Inglis Banner
Multiple Gr1-winning shuttler & former star Australian sprinter Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) added a juvenile feature success when front-running daughter Diamond Earth (Choisir-Face Of The Earth, by Strategic) gained the judge’s decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $250,000 Inglis Banner (1000m) for 2YOs at Moonee Valley. Diamond Earth (ridden by Damien Oliver for trainer Anthony Cummings) scored by a head from fellow filly Lamingtons (Alert-Blue Marwina, by Marwina) with a further long-neck to favoured colt Swipeline (Sequalo-Encapsulate, by Encosta De Lago). Diamond Earth (a $60,000 yearling consigned by Golden Grove at the 2011 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) now has 1 win from 2 starts for $151,000 earnings.
