ROCK DIAMONDS N WINS SATURDAY NIGHT 42G OPEN HANDICAP PACE


Rock Diamonds N, the Master of the Maritimes by virtue of his win in last month's Gold Cup & Saucer, had no issues in his first appearance since early summer. From post position No. 5, he cleared his four inside foes well before a 27-second opening quarter-mile.

It was a rated 56.4 intermission, with Benhope Rulz N pocketed and San Domino A offered a weak, first-up bid from third. Rock Diamonds N threw down a 27-second third quarter to keep the wolves at bay, taking a length and quarter lead into the lane.

He then held his pocket pursuer by that same margin in 1:51.3, with The Real One, 19-10 fave Micky Gee N and San Domino A settling for the minors.

For fifth choice Rock Diamonds N, a 6 year old Down Under Rocknroll Hanover gelding co-owned by his escort, Kevin Sywyk and Frank Ranaldi trained by Heidi Gibbs, it was his eighth win in 18 seasonal starts The exacta paid $90, the triple returned $337.50 and the superfecta paid $1,237.
