Default World-record juvenile Diamond Fury to debut on Saturday at Del Mar

Diamond Fury, the most expensive two-year-old in training ever purchased at public auction, is scheduled to make his career debut in the third race at Del Mar on Saturday, a 5Ĺ-furlong maiden special weight event.
Charles Fipke purchased the son of freshman sire Sea of Secrets for $2.7-million from the consignment of Sequel Bloodstock, agent, at the Barretts Equine Ltd. March sale of selected two-year-olds in training.

Mike Smith will pilot Diamond Fury, who has been impressive in the mornings at Del Mar for trainer Bob Baffert. The chestnut colt covered five furlongs in a handy :58.80 on August 9, then followed with a handy :58.80 on August 16, and a handy :59 on August 24.

Bred in Kentucky by John T. L. Jones Jr., Diamond Fury is out of the winning Tasso mare Swift Spirit.

This horse has gotta look like $2mill bucks, why else the steep price for a freshman sire, even if it is a great dam?

Sea of Secrets is by Storm Cat from a Mr. Prospector mare, pretty good lineage. This two year old had already apparently started to show he is a runner when the auction was held. Dennis is also right -- How can the connections be so stupid as to give this horse to Baffert over Zito, I can't think of a single important juvenile or sophomore race that Baffert has ever won. I think Baffert wins at something like a 2% rate with debuting two year olds. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img]

Full proof that you can take a mediocre allowance sprinter and turn him into a money making machine.

That $2.7 mil investment doesn't look too good after that race!
