Jockey Peter Robl put a troubled year behind when piloting tiny two-year-old Diamond Earth to  victory in the $254,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m) at Warwick Farm today.

The experience hoop spent much of the year on the sidelines after being suspended on gambling related charges for 12 months last November.

Diamond Earth was the most experienced horse in the race having its third start today and Robl used that knowledge to advantage.

He set a scorching pace in front from Bella Kurra and Geecup with race favourite Flying Snitzel dragged back early from a wide gate.

At the 400m, Flying Snitzel was checked back a further length as jockey Tommy Berry extricated it from a pocket after  being between horses.

The Gerald Ryan-trained galloper was giving Diamond Earth an eight to 10 lengths start once clear at the 300m.

First starter De Shamekh, who settled fourth, was flat-footed at the 400m and five lengths from Diamond Earth at the 300m.

Both De Shamekh and Flying Snitzel finished powerfully while Diamond Earth started to take short steps from the 100m mark.

Diamond Earth had previous won the Microflite Inglis Banner two-year-old (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day.

That day the $60,000 yearling purchased picked up $145,000 and the Anthony Cummings-trained youngster added $150,000 today.

“We hadn’t asked a lot of her leading into this, she is a natural two-year-old with plenty of speed,” Cummings said.

“The trick was to get her here fit enough and feeling good about the whole deal.

“Looking at her family, taking advantage of good gate speed sees them win.”

Robl was happy to win a feature race.

“It is better than watching feature race winners on the couch,” Robl said.

“She is just pure speed, we went 300m and I thought I was going too quick for a five furlong race.

“So I thought if I  can’t slow down I would just go with her and she was happy doing it.

“She beat them with pure speed.

“The fence is as a good a place as any and I stuck to it.”

While Diamond Earth looks a true 1000m horse both De Shamekh and Flying Snitzel look to have bright futures.

The Gai Waterhouse trained De Shamekh is beautifully bred by Encosta De Lago from Group 1 winning mare Shamekha.

    I have learned result-oriented things via your website. One other thing I want to say is newer laptop operating systems are inclined to allow far more memory to get used, but they likewise demand more storage simply to operate. If your computer could not handle a lot more memory as well as the newest application requires that ram increase, it usually is the time to buy a new Laptop or computer. Thanks

    A couple of months ago I discovered another website that talked in depth about this topic. I am glad you were able to shed some light on what’s really happening out there. Some webistes are overtly biased towards things like this. Where do you think the industry is going in response to this?
