Cimorene wins epic Diamond Classic

Miss Sangrial (Art Major) started a short priced favourite and was able to hold the front from barrier one.

She had to endure a lot of pressure however from Tenniele Erin (Sportswriter) who over raced in the breeze.

While this was going on Cimorene enjoyed a great trip sitting in one out, two back.

Making her move with 600 metres to travel, Cimorene moved up quickly to the outside of Miss Sangrial.

Coming off the home bend those two cleared out and engaged in a battle. Both fought all the way to the finish line with Cimorene hitting it first, just a short half head in front of Miss Sangrial.

Courageous Elle (Courage Under Fire) ran on well for third.

Cimorene has really hit her stride winning her last two starts and now has earnings of $71,750.

Bred by Terry Ferguson’s Sea Horse Racing Stables, she is out of the five time winning Northern Luck mare Ultimate Package, who in turn is a granddaughter of the great Sokys Number.
