Fontiton (2015) was the last filly to do the Blue Diamond Preview – Prelude double. More recently, the 2022 Blue Diamond Preview winning filly Miss Roseiano ran second next-up in the Prelude.

Just two fillies have completed the Blue Diamond Preview – Blue Diamond Stakes double: Bounding Away (1986) and Miracles Of Life (2013).
