Arcadia, CA (February 3, 2023) – Nene Diamond, the 3-year-old daughter of Stanford, made a smashing debut in the 3rd race at Santa Anita, a six furlong maiden special weight going six furlongs over the fast main track at Santa Anita Park.
Nene Diamond was greeted at the start with a good, swift bump from the filly to the outside. Unfazed, she quickly galloped to an easy lead and never looked back. She piched her ears forward and won under a hand ride by more than three lengths.
Always well thought of, Nene Diamond was purchased for $100,000 by Slugo Racing at the 2021 Fasig-Tipton California Fall Yearlings and Horses of All Ages Sale. Trained by Mike Puype, she was bred by Bar C Racing Stables, Inc. She is out of the winning Discreet Cat mare, Joyce and Me.
