Six-year-old gelding Too Many Diamonds completed an amazing feat at Market Rasen on Sunday recording his fourth win in just eight days. 

Making the accomplishment even more incredible was the fact he arrived at Plumpton the previous Sunday as a maiden of 41 starts. 

His run at Plumpton on May 14 was the first for his new trainer Dan Skelton, where was sent around as the even-money favourite in a 3200m hurdle race, going on to score by 13 lengths. 

Skelton criss-crossed the UK over the week to find the right races for Too Many Diamonds, heading north to Sedgefield on May 16 where he score by 12 lengths, then on to Bangor on May 20 for a 2 1/4 length win before completing the quartet the following day at Market Rasen. 

Jockey Harry Skelton, the brother of Dan, rode Too Many Diamonds in three of his four wins over the week. 

He described the gelding as an 'incredible little horse' following his win on Sunday. 

"Going across the line I gave him a big pat and he deserved it," Skelton said. 

"Incredible little horse really to do that, to be sound enough, tough enough. All credit to the horse and Dan and the team. Dan’s placed him tremendously well"

The four wins in eight days came after a gap of 1473 days between Too Many Diamond's debut and his maiden victory.
