The Diamond Creek Farm Two Year Old Classic is into its eighth year and this years’ field is the biggest since its inception.

The race was initiated by the Southern Bred Southern Reared breeding group and this Sunday’s event will be run for a stake of $50,000.

Diamond Creek Farm Two Year Old Classic winner Lazarus

In its seventh year of existence the All Stars Stable has dominated the race, winning it four times with Kept Under Wraps (2014), Lazarus (2015), A Bettor Act (2018) and Virgil (2019).

The only race day winner entered this year is Franco Indie trained by Hayden Cullen, and he’s likely to start favourite despite his wide draw. Leading Southland chance is the Brett Gray trained You’re So Fine.
