Two BDS-bred winners in two days!

5 November 2023

Two winners in two days - a day after Luke Short won again at Dundalk, it was the turn of Dame Sarra to shine on Saturday when successful at Chelmsford City. Both were born and raised at Blue Diamond Stud.

Luke Short was winning for the fourth time in the colours of The Spice Of Life Partnership and trainer Noel Meade when striking in the 1m4f handicap at Dundalk on Friday evening. The hardy six-year-old is a son of our Diadem Stakes winner Sayif, who stood for us with David Hodge at Llety Farms, and out of the Acclamation mare Acclamare.

“He wants quick ground, he just got lost in the muck at Leopardstown," Noel Meade told “I don't know if there is much else here to run him in. If there is another race we might run again but if not we'll probably have to wait until next year with him.

“He would jump on quick ground as well, and he jumps quite well, but we'll have to wait until next year for that.”

A day later, Dame Sarra added to her tally for Ed Dunlop when successful in the 1m6f handicap at Chelmsford City. By our multiple Group 1 winner Decorated Knight (pictured), the progressive filly was scoring for the second time this season in the colours of Austin and June Allison and partner. She is a half-sister to the winning Hector Loza and out of Queen Sarra, a Blue Diamond-bred daughter of Shamardal and Grace O'Malley.

Many congratulations to all connections.
