September 24, 2022, Auteuil Racecourse (Paris). – Well on his way to the €320,000 Maurice Gillois 4yo Chase (Gr1), Diamond Carl (Diamond Boy) is still unbeaten in 2022 after winning the €135,000 The Fellow - Marquise de Moratalla 4yo Chase (Gr3). It was the end of his Summer break, but he showed that he was already well on schedule.

After being held up, the François Nicolle-trained gelding came by in the bridle and left his rivals no chance. While she tried to resist him, La Manigance (No Risk At All) had to give in and lost second place to Impressive (Kapgarde), giving the Papot stable the two first slots in the race.

Diamond Carl is out of the Mansonnien sire Diamond Boy, and about of Sa Carla (Satri) a chase winner, also second in the Prix d’Essai des Pouliches 3yo Hurdle at Enghien.

Diamond Carl is Sa Carla's 3rd foal. The 3-years-old filly Sarabend (Sommerabend) and the 2-years-old colt Lebandacarl (Bande) are declared in training. In 2022, she gave a filly named Dschinging Carla (Dschingis Secret) and was bred to Masked Marvel (Montjeu).

Diamond Carl was listed in the Auctav flash sale after his Gr3 2nd place at Compiègne and the Papot family purchased him then for €210,000.
