Jake n Jasmine Smulley are the people who own n promote Big Diamond now and they are absolutely making things better and better ever year...They are both young, have a long history at the place and have a passion for the sport and to see Big Diamond succeed into the future...The new surface was a huge investment for them but its absolutely paying off, as the racing at Big Diamond last year and now going into this year has never been better, with minimal dust...The future at the place sure is bright, and thats a wonderful thing.
