Atlantic Jewel Wins Gr1 Thousand Guineas

Thursday, 13th October 2011

On the Australian track yesterday, former Australian Champion 2nd-Season Sire & multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a Gr1 quinella (& 21st individual stakes-winner) when boom unbeaten daughter Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock-Regard, by Zabeel) notched her 4th successive win in just 7 weeks since her racetrack debut in last August with a dominant 3-lengths victory in the $500,000 Gr1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) for 3YO fillies at Caulfield in Melbourne. Hot favourite Atlantic Jewel (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Mark Kavanagh) defeated Mosheen (Fastnet Rock-Sumehra, by Stravinsky) & Sharnee Rose (Nadeem-Farasha, by Jeune). Atlantic Jewel (a $320,000 yearling consigned by Vinery Stud at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 4 wins from 4 starts for $394,225 earnings.
