Plenty to like about Diescentric; ABOVE AVERAGE.
Although bred by Morgan's Ford Farm in Virginia, Diescentric's immediate family is European; he is out of aSharplaw Autumn and Caona.
Diesis's finest moments came in 1982 when he captured the Middle Park and Dewhurst Stakes for Cecil en route to two-year-old championship honours. After two below-par runs the following year, he was retired to Mill Ridge Farm in Kentucky, where away from the shadow of his Group 1-winning brother Kris, he became a leading international sire. Although he never covered large books, he sired seven champions and 14 Group 1 winners from 23 crops of racing age, among them the Cecil-trained Oaks heroines Diminuendo, Ramruma and Love Divine.
Diesis was pensioned in April 2006 and put down seven months later after fracturing a hip in a paddock accident.
