Diamonds proved too strong at her second attempt down the Flemington straight

Adelaide trainer Chris Bieg has recorded his first ever state-to-state double, with mares Tubby Two Tracks winning at Morphettville before Diamonds proved too strong at Flemington.

“First state-to-state double. I’m rapt with that. I told Josh to get some cover and he’s ridden that a treat. She’s finished off enormous,” Bieg said.

Already a listed placegetter, Diamonds relished a drop in grade to record her fifth win after struggling in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville last start.

“She was a victim of circumstances last time. First-up she was enormous and we were very confident wherever she ran today that she was going to be winning.”

“She’d had one start down the straight at Flemington and Craig Williams got off and said the only thing that cost her winning was her lack of experience to straight racing,” Bieg said.

Apprentice Josh Richards stayed out of trouble from a wide gate, presenting the mare at the 400m and lifting her late to record a tough victory.

“I probably asked her a little bit early, but she took me up there quite easy. To her credit she was full of running and felt really well in herself,” Richards said.

Bieg suggested post-race that there were plenty of options for her next.

“Probably spring time is going to be her go now, but there’s plenty of races around for the next few months, so we’ll work it out,” Bieg said.
