Miracles Of Life had not scored a race win since she took out the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in February last year and is set to be sold at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale next week, but produced a strong performance that could see her continue her racing career in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville next weekend.

The daughter of Not A Single Doubt was settled just behind leader Classy Jack in the early stages of the race and hit the front at the 250 metre mark before racing away from the rest of the field to score a comfortable win from Jazz Song and Classy Jack; with well-backed favourite The Quarterback in fourth.

Miracles Of Life started her racing career with two dominate victories in Adelaide and stamped herself as a clear favourite for the Blue Diamond Stakes with a four and a half lengths win in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) at Caulfield on January 26.

Connections elected to pay the late entry free to get Miracles Of Life into the Blue Diamond Stakes field and she more than justified that decision by recording a strong win to give trainer Daniel Clarken and jockey Lauren Stojakovic their maiden wins at Group 1 level.

Miracles Of Life was unable to recapture her two-year-old form during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, but has returned to a semblance of her best form since returning to the races with a sixth place finish in the Listed Boy Hoysted Handicap (1000m) at Flemington on March 1.

The three-year-old finished an unlucky second behind Angels Beach in the Listed Manihi Classic (1050m) at Morphettville on March 29 and finished second in the Listed Redelva Stakes (1050m) at the same venue on April 12 before returning to the winners stall in the Euclase Stakes today.

An emotional Daniel Clarken was clearly delighted to see his star galloper score another race win and suggested that Miracles Of Life could return to the races in The Goodwood next weekend.
