Further success for Diamond Boy

Further success for Diamond Boy

Kilbarry Lodge Stud’s Diamond Boy continues to record a number of notable track successes with his early off-spring, the latest of which was the four-year-old mare Etincellante.

The bay followed-up her third-placed finish at Clairefontaine in mid-August, by claiming the 11-runner Prix or Noir Ac Hurdle at Le Touquet on Sunday in the colours of breeder Haras D’Ecouves.
Diamond Boy has had three point-to-point runners to date, one of which was a winner when the Gigginstown House stud-owned Valdieu won the four-year-old maiden at The Pigeons in March 2017. Now trained by Noel Meade, Valdieu has since placed second on two occasions in bumpers at Navan and Punchestown.
Irish winners by Diamond Boy include the Gordon Elliot-trained Diamond Turf who was a faller at Horse and Jockey last March before finishing third at Limerick in December on his bumper debut and followed this run up with a nine-length win in a bumper at Navan in January.
Other performers on the track by Diamond Boy include Grade 3 hurdle winner, Don’t Hesitate, Le Precieux, and the Grade 3-placed Viola St Goustan.
His stock have been bought by names such as Liss House and Lakefield Farm, Mount Eaton, Monamore stables and Bobby O’Ryan. At the Goffs Land Rover Sales this year, Gordon Elliott & Aidan O'Ryan bought a three-year-old gelding by the up-and-coming sire for €75,000. At this year's edition of the Tattersalls Derby Sale Lulham Bloodsotck acquired a well-bred son for €80,000.
A son of Mansonnien, Diamond Boy is a half-brother to the three-time Grade 1 winner, Golden Silver, and won five races for Francois Doumen as well as being placed on a further four starts ranging from a mile and four to a mile and seven.
Diamond Boy retired to stud in France in 2012.

He currently stands at:
Kilbarry Lodge Stud,
