Donna Madeira Enters 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Betting

One time triple figure outsider for next month’s Blue Diamond Stakes 2013, Donna Madeira has firmed dramatically in the futures markets for the juvenile’s feature after her breakthrough win at Sandown on Wednesday.

Pat Carey’s Henrythenavigator filly debuted at Sandown Hillside in the Swettenham Stud Dash For Cash Fillies 2YO No Maiden Wins (900m) event without a lead-up trail on January 16 and caught the eye of the punters and bookies with her smart one and three quarter length victory over the odds-on favourite Sworn Revenge ($1.90) as a $20 outsider.

“She just flew from the boxes, she’s not big and she’s just so sharp and I couldn’t ask her to do any more than what she’s done today,” Carey said after the diminutive filly’s classy mid-week win.

“She’d had a couple of jump outs at home where she learnt a fair bit from one trial to another, but coming here today there was a bit of hype around about a couple of the horses so you’re always reserved in your judgment.

“It’s just a fantastic group of close friends and family that we’ve put together for this horse, so to come here and win with a filly like that makes it really sweet.”

It was a nice career start for the $105,500 buy from last year’s William Inglis & Sons Melbourne Premier Yearling Sales, Donna Madeira being prepared for a hopeful shot at the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse on February 23.

The only thing throwing a dampener over her win was the eight-meeting suspension of jockey Rhys McLeod after Glen Boss, aboard runner-up Sworn Revenge, lodged an (unsuccessful) protest against the winning hoop for not being fully clear when crossing to hit the front with 600m left to travel.

“She is only small but is a gutsy little thing,” McLeod said of the winner.

“She got right into stride very easy and she run through the line very well.

“We rolled down the hill pretty well and when I asked her for an effort she gave it to me.”

Futures Blue Diamond Stakes odds opened around the country this week with speedy South Australian filly Miracles Of Life the $7 favourite despite the undefeated youngster not being nominated for the event.

In the very early markets meanwhile Donna Madeira could be found as long as $151 but her successful first-up run has seen her price slashed to $31 at – an equal price as David Hayes’ Flying Spur colt I Am Titanium and the Peter Moody-trained Thermal Current, both having run second in their race debuts.

The Blue Diamond Stakes picture will become a little clearer Saturday week with the $120,000 Listed Blue Diamond Previews, one for the fillies and one for the colts & geldings, running at Caulfield’s Australia Day meeting.
