Cast Of Diamonds showed at Rotorua why trainer Tony Pike has always held a good opinion of the three-year-old.

We bred and sold the son of Eminent who produced a dominant performance to break his maiden over 1560 metres for the Cambridge horseman and rider Wiremu Pinn.

Cast Of Diamonds lobbed along in sixth spot before improving around runners 800 metres from home to hit the front on straightening and, under hands and heels riding, extended to coast home by 3.3l.

He had placed in three of his previous four appearances and Pike is confident the best will be seen of the gelding when he is further stepped up in trip.

He secured Cast Of Diamonds out of our 2022 draft at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale draft for $40,000.

He us a son of the O’Reilly mare Too Many Diamonds who is an unraced half-sister to the G2 Red Anchor Stakes winner Royal Asscher and the family o the G1 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes winner Diamond Shower.

Also the dam of the G2 Rich Hill Mile winner Ruud Not Too, Too Many Diamonds has a Hello Youmzain yearling daughter named Lucy In The Sky.
