Diademe Continues Winning Habit

Impressive Savabeel mare Diademe continued her march through the grades with a gutsy effort at New Plymouth on Friday. Despite interrupted run, the four-year-old got home in a driving finish to complete a hat-trick of wins from only five appearances.

Trained at Cambridge by Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman, Diademe was purchased by Scott Richardson Bloodstock for $50,000 from WS’s 2010 Karaka draft. She is out of the unraced O’Reilly mare Bling and is a half-sister to the Pins mare Shanstar, who has been a winner in a handful of starts from Richard Collett’s stable.

Bred by Garry Chittick, Diademe’s grand-dam is a sister to the dual Gr.3 winner and Gr.1 performer Starcent (Gold Trail Stakes, Lowland Stakes). It is also the family of the Australian Gr 2 winners Sportsman (Expressway Stakes, Shannon Handicap, Peter Pan Stakes) and Prisoner Of Love (Tea Rose Stakes).
