Atlantic Jewel Half-Sister Racetrack Debut Today
Bookmakers will be expected to take few chances today when 3YO filly Commanding Jewel (Commands-Regard, by Zabeel) makes her debut for trainer Leon Corstens in a Maiden (975m) at Swan Hill in Victoria following her recent facile 12-lengths 900m Wangaratta trial win. 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 (7 wins including the Gr1 Thousand Guineas & Gr1 All Aged Stakes).
