Diamond Wow Wins Our Dear Peggy At Gulfstream Park

Diamond 100 Racing Club, Amy E Dunne, and trainer Patrick Biancone’s Diamond Wow made her family proud at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., Saturday, capturing the $75,000 Our Dear Peggy to remain undefeated in two starts.

“She’s special,” said Biancone after the daughter of Lookin At Lucky’s 1 ¾-length victory.

The Our Dear Peggy, a stakes for 2-year-old fillies originally scheduled for a mile on turf, was contested at seven furlongs on a fast main track.

Diamond Wow, who had previously debuted with a three-length victory in a five-furlong maiden special weight race on turf at Gulfstream, is scheduled to run next at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., in either the Oct. 8 Grade 1 Alcibiades at 1 1/16 miles on dirt or the Oct. 13 Grade 2 Jessamine at 1 1/16-miles on turf.

“If she comes out good and is training good, we’re planning to bring her to Keeneland,” Biancone said.

Diamond Wow ($4.80) is out of Patriotic Diamond, who is a half-sister to Biancone-trained Diamond Oops, a son of Lookin At Lucky who is a multiple graded-stakes winner on both dirt and turf.

“Turf, dirt it made no difference,” said Biancone, who reported that Patriotic Diamond is back in foal to Lookin At Lucky. “I like to start my 2-year-olds at five furlongs on turf because I don’t want them to have a hard race. Sometimes they win, sometimes they finish second. She won because she’s very talented. Today, she waited and took a lot of kick-back.”

Diamond Wow, who stalked the early pace before moving to the lead on the turn into the homestretch, shook off a strong challenge by Harper Be Good in mid-stretch on her way to a 1 ¾-length victory. The Kentucky-bred filly ran seven furlongs in 1:24.67 under Romero Maragh.

The Our Dear Peggy was followed by the $60,000 City of West Park, a seven-furlong overnight handicap for 3-year-olds. Magic Stables LLC’s Papetu, the even-money favorite ridden by Miguel Vasquez, made a four-wide sweep to the lead at the top of the stretch and drew clear. The Antonio Sano-trained son of Dialed In, who won the Carry Back earlier in the Spring/Summer Meet, ran seven furlongs in 1:22.65.
