Diamond Tathagata Wins Gr2 Skyline Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when 2YO colt Diamond Tathagata (Hinchinbrook-Maltese, by Tale of the Cat) scored by 0.2 length for trainer Mark Newnham in the $200,000 Gr2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) for 2YO colts & geldings, over fellow colts Coruscate (Exceed and Excel-Dazzler, by More Than Ready) & Single Bullet (Not a Single Doubt-Cheetara, by More Than Ready). Diamond Tathagata, who was a $100,000 purchase at the 2016 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Kooringal Stud, improved his record to 1 win and 1 placing (including the Listed (R) ATC Inglis Nursery) from 2 starts for $206,100 earnings. From the Tale of the Cat mare Maltese, Diamond Tathagata hails from the family of stakes winner Marwell Lady, dual Group winner Indian Raj, and multiple Group winner Stage Hit, dam of Gr2 winners Encores & Irradiate, and Listed winning sire Sir Laurence.
