Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) History

The Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) was first run in 1982 as a Listed race and Olive Branch was the inaugural winner. Plenty of classy fillies have since won the event including Bounding Away (1986), Triscay (1990), Rostova (2009), Crystal Lily (2010), Miracles Of Life (2013) and Eloping (2014).

The race was upgraded to a Group 3 event from 1988-2004, dropped back to Listed class from 2005-14 and regained its current Group 3 status again in 2015.

From 1982-83 the race was run over 1200m, but has been contested over a shorter 1000m distance since 1984. Sandown Racecourse has also hosted the Blue Diamond Preview races on a number of occasions. The 2005 edition of the race was declared by stewards as a ‘No Race’ after two of the fillies had a “flying start” and jumped through the stalls before the barriers officially opened.

In 2017 the Blue Diamond Fillies Preview runner-up Tulip went on to run third in that autumn’s Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) in Sydney.
