Skye Diamonds

With a solid victory at Del Mar, Skye Diamonds is a proven commodity for the Filly & Mare Sprint. In her most recent start, she overcame adversity to win the Rancho Bernardino Handicap Aug. 13.

“She was blocked on the rail, they had her pinned in there and I was worried if she would get out in time,” trainer Bill Spawr said after the race. “Once she got out, though, she’s amazing. She just wants to win. Wants to beat you. She overcomes things.”

In her only other start at the surfside track, she also was a winner, but in a much different race. On that afternoon in the summer of 2016, she was victorious and was claimed out of the race for $40,000 by her current connections after campaigning for her breeder Dizney Double Diamond. She now races for the partnership of Lori Allen of Arlington, Texas, and California-based Bloom Racing of Solana Beach, Con Acker of Huntington Beach and Jon Lindo of Carlsbad.

In her first start for her new connections Oct. 22, 2016 at Santa Anita, Skye Diamonds carried a $50,000 claiming price. She won the races but was not claimed and has since raced exclusively in the allowance and stakes ranks.

Spawr, who won the 2011 Sprint with Amazombie, has been the leading trainer at Del Mar twice. He started working at racetracks as a teenager and saddled his first winner in 1977. Racing primarily in California, Spawr developed a reputation for improving horses he has claimed.
