When you put down $25,000 for a filly out of a maiden claiming race, one doesn’t always think they’ll be headed down the stakes path.  But on Sunday, that’s exactly where Mr. Amore Stable’s Diamond d’Oro will find herself for the first time when she breaks from post three in the $60,000 Klassy Briefcase Stakes for fillies and mares.

            “She was dropping down at Saratoga when we took her last year,” said trainer Jason Servis.  “She was second that day, which was great since she broke her maiden for us in her next start.”

            Since being taken out of that maiden event, Diamond d’Oro has won three of her six starts for her connections, including her most recent, an off the turf allowance/optional claiming here on June 7, that race off nearly a three month layoff.

            “She had an abscess in her foot and it just needed time to heal and grow out,” said Servis.  “It certainly didn’t bother her at all in her return race. She ran fantastic.”

            After setting a pressured pace early, Diamond d’Oro drew clear of her foes through the stretch to post a nearly seven length win in that race.  While Servis was impressed with the performance, he believes his filly is better on the grass.

            “Obviously she can run on both,” the trainer said, “but I think she is a better turf horse.  I wouldn’t complain if it came off the turf, she would do fine, but the turf is her better surface.”

            As for tactics in the 5 ½ furlong Klassy Briefcase, “That’s up to Joe (jockey Bravo),” Servis said.  “He’s the master and I’m sure he’ll put her in the right spot.”

            A 4-year-old by Medaglia d’Oro from the Forty Niner mare Forty Carats, Diamond  d’Oro has won two of her four starts in 2013.

            The Klassy Briefcase goes as the 10th race on Sunday’s 11-race program.
