TB, CH, F, Foaled February 16, 2019

Roughly A Diamond is by First Samurai (Giant’s Causeway / Freddie Frisson, by Dixieland Band) who was in the money 7 out of 8 races while averaging $114,384 per start. As a precocious two-year-old, he broke his maiden in his first try, and then won the next three races – including the Gr.1 Hopeful Stakes and the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes. He then went on to place 3rd in the Gr.1 Bessemer Trust Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, 2nd in the Gr.2 Hutcheson Stakes, and 1st in the Gr.2 Fountain of Youth Stakes. As a stallion, First Samurai has proven himself as sire of 6 millionaires, 32 Stakes Winners – including Multiple Gr.1 Winners – with 70% Winners from Starters and 11% Stakes Horses. In 2020, he was the leading sire of 2-year-olds. Son of the “Iron Horse,” three-time champion sire Giant’s Causeway, First Samurai is carrying on his sire’s success as a stallion.

Roughly A Diamond’s dam, Leonor Fini (Peintre Celebre / Friendly Finance (IRE), by Auction Ring) is stakes placed where she was 2nd in the Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F. Victor McCalmont Stakes and also the Black Type Possibly Perfect Stakes. As a broodmare, she has produced 4 winners from 5 starters.
