Savabeel’s daughter Queen Of Diamonds is the joint winner of the prestigious New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year title.

Despite finishing out of the money in Saturday’s Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks, she shared the honours with Imelda Mary.

Trained by Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman, the China Horse Club-owned Queen Of Diamonds made giant strides this season.

She broke her maiden in the spring and next time out won the Gr.3 Eulogy Stakes before a third in the Gr.2 Eight Carat Classic.

Queen Of Diamonds then ran fourth in the Karaka Million Classic and placed in the Gr.2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic.

She subsequently bolted away with the Gr.2 Lowland Stakes before finishing eighth on a testing track at Trentham in the Oaks.

Congratulations to her connections at the China Horse Club and to trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman.
