Fairytale 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Win for Miracles Of Life

The fairytale came true for Adelaide trainer Daniel Clarken and apprentice jockey Lauren Stojakovic at Caulfield today as Miracles Of Life claimed victory in the Group 1 $1 million 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

There was plenty of debate in the lead-up as to whether connections should stick with Stojakovic instead of opting for a big-name rider but their loyalty was rewarded as the 29-year-old produced a perfect ride.

The daughter of Not A Single Doubt jumped cleanly from the inside barrier allowing Stojakovic to position her perfectly behind the speed.

The sprint was run at a genuine tempo which set the race up for Miracles Of Life who showed a terrific turn of foot to quickly surpass her rivals in the straight and win by a length from Fast ‘n’ Rocking and Godiva Rock.

It was by far the biggest win of Stojakovic’s career who paid tribute to a filly she describes as “awesome.”

“It worked out more perfect than I could have imagined,” Stojakovic said.

“I sat behind the speed and approaching the turn a run just opened for me.

“She just ran away, she’s awesome.”

An emotional Clarken was thrilled that the plan to target the glamour two-year-old race had come to fruition and was full of praise for the ride of Stojakovic.

“That ride was just 10 out of 10,” Clarken said.

“She knows the horse and she knows what she’s got and she used it to her advantage.

“I just won a Blue Diamond!”

The win takes the star filly’s record to four unbeaten starts and her prize pool to more than $700,000.
