Atlantic Jewel Wins Wakeful Stakes

Monday, 31st October 2011

Former Australian Champion 2nd-Season Sire & multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when boom unbeaten daughter Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock-Regard, by Zabeel) notched her 5th successive win in just 9 weeks since her racetrack debut in last August with a scintillating 7-lengths victory in the $300,000 Gr2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies at Flemington. Hot favourite & top-weighted Atlantic Jewel (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Mark Kavanagh) defeated Rahveel (Zabeel-Sarah Vee, by End Sweep) & Dowager Queen (Savabeel-Dower, by Pins). Atlantic Jewel (a $320,000 yearling consigned by Vinery Stud at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 5 wins (also including last start’s Gr1 Thousand Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield on October 12) from 5 starts for $576,225 earnings.
