Atomic Wins Chairman's Stakes

Thursday, 10th February 2011

Gr3-winning & multiple Gr1-placed Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a juvenile black-type success (& 37th individual stakes-winner) when favoured colt Atomic (Commands-Fluffy Duck, by Tale Of The Cat) scored by a long-neck in yesterday's $100,000 Listed Chairman's Stakes (1000m) for 2YOs at Sandown. Atomic (ridden by Ben Melham for trainer Lee Freedman) defeated fellow colt Vatican (God's Own-Our Sistine, by Peintre Celebre) & the filly Hollyweird (Snitzel-Last Blaze, by Narita Brian). Atomic (a $205,000 yearling consigned by Rosari Farm at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) earned $60,500 for his initial victory.
