2/12/2019 Blue Diamond aim for Tagaloa

Promising colt Tagaloa (Lord Kanaloa) will bypass the Magic MIllions 2YO Classic (RL, 1200m) and instead be saved for a shot at the Blue Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) on February 22. Co-trainer Trent Busuttin confirmed yesterday that Saturday’s Moonee Valley winner would head to the paddock for a ten-day freshen up before preparing for Melbourne’s premier two-year-old race. Tagaloa, who ran third to Hard Landing (All Too Hard) in the Maribyrnong Plate (Gr 3, 1000m) at his first start, was a $300,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase from the Arrowfield Stud draft.
