The Diamond One Wins Gr3 Cuddle Stakes
At Trentham in New Zealand, former Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat (Storm Cat-Yarn, by Mr Prospector) added a Group success when 5YO mare The Diamond One (Tale of the Cat-The Jewel, by O'Reilly) scored by a half head in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Cuddle Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+ f&m, over 4YO mares Procurement (O'Reilly-Procure, by Centaine) & Irion (Danroa-Dopff, by Tights). The Diamond One took her record to 7 wins (including the Gr3 White Robe Lodge Handicap - twice) and 6 placings (including the Listed Mosgiel Stakes) from 17 starts for NZ$216,675 earnings. The Diamond One is the third foal to race from NZ 1,000 Guineas winner The Jewel, who has also produced the stakes-placed The Glitzy One (Flying Spur) and the very promising The Bold One (Fastnet Rock).
