Clarken Sticks with Stojakovic on 2013 Blue Diamond Favourite

Morphettville horseman Daniel Clarken has opted to stick with Adelaide jockey Lauren Stojakovic for the interstate debut of this year’s Blue Diamond Stakes 2013 favourite Miracles Of Life on Saturday.

The undefeated daughter of Not A Single Doubt races in Melbourne for the first time in Caulfield’s $120,000 Listed Patianck Farm Blue Diamond Fillies Preview (1000m) and despite the plethora of calls Clarken has taken from big name Victorian hoops wanting the ride, he has opted to stick with the fillies’ regular rider.

Stojakovic, who has ridden in just 13 stakes races to date, has been aboard Miracles Of Life for both of her wins to date and will look to keep the winning streak going on Saturday saluting in just her second black type following her win with Just Sybil in the 2011 WH Wylie Handicap.

A five and a half length win on debut at Morphettville Parks on December 22 in a 2YO Plate was followed by an even more impressive nine length romp over Midnight Rule in a handicap clash on January 5 at South Australia’s premier racing venue.

Now it is the 2013 Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) Miracles Of Life will tackle, her performance in which will determine whether Clarken and co. pay the expensive $55,000 late entry fee for her to run in the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) on February 23.

Still $55,000, which connections have until next Tuesday when Blue Diamond Stakes third declarations are taken to pay, will be a small price to pay if Miracles Of Life goes on to deliver in the big one the way the bookies believe she well.

Despite not being among the current 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes nominations she is topping the Blue Diamond Stakes odds at a quote of $7.50, a price that is sure to firm if she is successful in the BD Preview.
