The progeny of Alabar stallions enjoyed a tremendous day out at the Harness Jewels at Cambridge on Saturday.
The unbeaten Art Major filly Princess Tiffany with a dominant win in the 2YO Diamond.
After settling near last, Princess Tiffany made a mid-race move to take the front and it was all over. She powered home in 55.8 to win by 5 ¼ lengths – the biggest margin of the day.
Bred and raced by Braeden and Caroline Whitelock, Princess Tiffany is now undefeated in five starts.
Enhance Your Calm was another undefeated Jewels winner.
The son of Majestic Son headed into the race and he certainly made sure he didn’t blemish his record.
Mark Purdon sent him straight to the front from barrier four and from there he was never headed.
He cleared out in the home straight and won easily by an imposing 4 ½ lengths. Full Noise ran a good race to finish second and make it a Majestic Son quinella.
Bred by Sara Smith, Enhance Your Calm was sold to Danny and Joanne Zavitsanos before he raced, and he has now delivered them their first Group 1 victory.

Shez All Rock further enhanced her reputation when winning the 3YO Diamond in 1:51.8 – the fastest time of the day.
The superstar filly showed good gate speed to lead and then proceeded to dominate her rivals.
Sprinting home in 55.2 under a hold, Shez All Rock was simply in a different league to the many talented horses she left in her wake.
She is putting together a career which has not been seen before with wins now in the NSW Oaks, Victorian Oaks, New Zealand Oaks and now 3YO Diamond.
Bred by George Tenant in Victoria and now raced by Chris Ryder, Shez All Rock will now head towards the Breeders Crown.

Eamon Maguire added another Group 1 win to his resume when taking out the 4YO Emerald over fellow Art Major son Star Galleria in a tough battle.
A G’s White Socks was forced to face the breeze and when Eamon Maguire pulled off his back on the home bend he quickly accelerated by him.
He then dug deep to hold off the spirited run of Star Galleria to win in 1:51.9 – just 0.1 outside of Heaven Rocks’ race record.
A G’s White Socks finished a very gallant third.
For Eamon Maguire it was his second Group 1 win this season and he will now be one of the leading chances in next season’s New Zealand Cup.
Winterfell capped his outstanding season with an easy win in the 3YO Ruby.
Having previously won the Northern Trotting Derby and New Zealand Sires Stakes Championship, Winterfell started a warm favourite and didn’t let his backers down winning by three lengths untouched.
Bred and raced by Trevor Casey, Winterfell is a son of Majestic Son and out of the Live Or Die mare Una Bromac - He is thus a half sister to Escapee.
