Bright Diamant
(article by Maïté Ganzin on the "Grande Semaine de Fontainebleau" : French national age-group finals 2013) :
"[...]Although the sun shone relentlessly during all nine days, true to his name - Diamond, in english - Diamant de Semilly shone brighter than all the other stallions. Not only could he claim to have sired five out of the 11 "Elite" awarded horses, but he is also the father to both of the French Champion and the vice-champion in the 5YO male SF category : Urano de Cartigny [...] and Un Diamant des Forêts [...]. In the female 5YO category, Diamant has passed his qualities to one of the best young mares, Unte des Forêts [...] who came 3rd [...]. Last but not the least, another Diamant daughter, Shana de Kerglenn [...] earned the French Champion title in the 7YO Criterium [...]."
