Lone Star: 'Diamonds' survives foul claim

Email

Deal Me Diamonds retained her win in the third race after there was both a stewards' inquiry into the stretch run and an objection lodged against her in the $5,000 conditioned claiming sprint for fillies and mares.

Deal Me Diamonds was in the lead as Cat's Poppet, No. 3, attempted to come between horses, checked and rerallied along the inside to finish second. The stewards ruled there would be no change to the order of finish.

It was announced that their decision was made because the rider of Cat's Poppet anticipated room that had not yet materialized, so Deal Me Diamonds was no responsible for interference.
