Cicero Farms Gets First Two-Year Winner by Sire

He Be Fire N Ice’s Cicero Farms’ First Two-Year-Old Winner is a Black-Type Placed Winner Mare Bred in Maryland by Frank P. Wright

The sultry chestnut filly, Fire Diamonds, was a runaway success at Golden Gate Fields, during her first start for trainer Steve M. Sherman. Being the treasure Ron and Barb Perry of Cicero Farms was hoping to have, Fire Diamonds scored her first victory in a gate to wire fashion winning gamely over a field comprised mostly of geldings and colts.

In less than four weeks after transferring to Sherman’s Golden Gate barn, Fire Diamond took her first start on the famed Tapeta footing, jumped from the gate and led throughout the mile maiden race. Getting a jump on the boys, Fire Diamond had good speed, set the pace from the rail to the stretch, was headed by Chapagne’s On Ice in mid-stretch, but under the tutelage of jockey Juan Hernandez, she fought back gamely to get the nod.

Returning $11.00 for a $2 win wager, the 2-year old He Be Fire N Ice filly increase her earnings to $10,420. Fire Diamonds out of Hannah’s Dowery by Steven Got Even produced the first 2-year-old winner for Cicero Farms by their sire He Be Fire N Ice. Fire Diamonds is the third foal by the stakes-placed winning Steven Got Even mare, this is the mare’s second started and second winner. Fire Diamonds was bred based on a similar cross to that of Grade II winning Lethal Heat.
