Gallant Bloom Result: Dust And Diamonds Scores Big Win At Belmont (VIDEO)

Dust and Diamonds upsets a strong field of filly and mare sprinters in the Gallant Bloom.

In a match-up of some of the best filly and mare sprinters in North America, Dust and Diamonds upstaged Musical Romance, Turbulent Descent, Emma's Encore and several other highly regarded sprinters to score a big win in the Grade 2 Gallant Bloom Handicap at odds of 9/1.

Dust and Diamonds broke alertly and sat two lengths off the the early leader, Roman Treasure, through a fast opening furlong in 21.82 second. Judy the Beauty, Musical Romance and Turbulent Descent looked poised to pounce on the leaders once they hit the turn but Dust and Diamonds had a lot left in the tank. Using mainly a hand-ride through the final furlongs, jockey Julien Leparoux guided Dust and Diamonds to the wire by two lengths over Judy the Beauty. Musical Romance finished third while favorite Turbulent Descent could only muster a final spot in the superfecta.

No matter how you look at this race, it was a very good performance by Dust and Diamonds.
