Atlantic Jewel Wins Gr1 Memsie Stakes
At Caulfield, Gr1-winning Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a Gr1 triumph when highly talented, undefeated 5YO mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock-Regard, by Zabeel) resumed off a 70-week break to score by 2.25-lengths eased down for trainer Mark Kavanagh in the $350,000 Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs+, over 4YO entire Ferlax (Pentire-Legs Akimbo, by Marscay) & 4YO gelding Super Cool (Fastnet Rock-Queen Mother, by Kingmambo). Atlantic Jewel was simply awesome in beating a top-class field with contemptuous ease, and every major spring race now appears at her mercy. In preserving her perfect record, Atlantic Jewel took her record to 8 wins (including the Gr1 Thousand Guineas, Gr1 All Aged Stakes, Gr2 Wakeful Stakes & Gr2 Sapphire Stakes) from 8 starts for $1,139,925 earnings. Her next assignment is expected to be at Moonee Valley in two weeks.
