Atlantic Jewel Half-Sister Dazzles In Trial
A much anticipated trial at Wangaratta in Victoria yesterday more than lived up to expectations when 2YO – now 3YO – filly Commanding Jewel (Commands-Regard, by Zabeel) thumped her opposition by 12-lengths over 900m for trainer Leon Corstens. A $205,000 purchase at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from Vinery's draft, Commanding Jewel is a 3/4-sister to undefeated champion filly Atlantic Jewel. From the exceptional UK Gr1 family of Pass The Peace and her daughter Embassy, she is expected to have her first start early in the Spring.
