Diamond Wow Confirmed for Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf

Gulfstream Stakes Winner Breezes 6F in 1:12 at Palm Meadows
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL
– Diamond Wow, second in the Oct. 13 Jessamine (G2) at Keeneland, is being pointed towards a start in the Nov. 5 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) at Del Mar, confirmed trainer Patrick Biancone Sunday at Gulfstream Park.
Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith has the mount on the daughter of Lookin At Lucky, who fell a head short of holding off California Angel in the Keeneland turf stakes for 2-year-old fillies.
Diamond Wow, who won her debut on turf before scoring in the off-the-turf My Dear Peggy Stakes at Gulfstream in her first two career starts, breezed six furlongs in 1:12 over a yielding turf at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream’s satellite training facility in Palm Beach Country, Sunday morning. Romero Maragh, who rode the Kentucky-bred filly in her two local victories, was aboard for the breeze.
“She’s going. She had a very good workout,” said Biancone, who owns Diamond Wow in partnership with Diamond 100 Racing Club LLC and Amy Dunne. “She wore a small blinker. I don’t like to put blinkers on young horses right away, but Mike said she was looking around a little [in the Jessamine]. Her whole family is like that.”
Diamond Wow is out of the Hat Trick mare Patriotic Diamond, a half-sister to Biancone-trained millionaire Diamond Oops, a multiple Grade 2 stakes winner who is also multiple Grade 1 stakes-placed.
