Is There A Draw Bias in the Blue Diamond Stakes?

Winners of the Blue Diamond Stakes have come from a wide-range of barriers, including the inside barrier like Miracles Of Life did in 2013 and from barrier 15 when Earthquake won in 2014 and Written By in 2018.

The past 20 years has shown that there isn’t a clear-cut barrier draw bias in the two-year-old feature event. The same can also be said for the sex of the winner with a mixture of colts and fillies saluting the judge in the Blue Diamond.

We will continue to monitor the winning barriers to see if a bias starts to emerge in the future.
