Promising three-year-old filly Diplomacia broke through for an impressive maiden win in the Mates 4 Life Plate (1150m) at Newcastle (Beaumont) on October 15.
Carrying the famous yellow and blue colours of Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Diplomacia jumped straight to the front for 2 kilo-claiming apprentice rider Nick Heywood and controlled the race to perfection.
An odds-on favourite, the daughter of Artie Schiller out of Dantana simply toyed with rivals in the end for a three quarter length victory over Lucid Kiss.
“That was rated to perfection by Nick and she is a very nice filly on the rise,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden.
