Atlantic Jewel Wins Gr2 Stocks Stakes
At Moonee Valley, Gr1-winning Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when unbeaten superstar 5YO mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock-Regard, by Zabeel) scored untouched by 2.5-lengths for trainer Mark Kavanagh in the $220,000 Gr2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) for 4YO+ mares, over fellow 5YO mare Oasis Bloom (Al Maher-Nawadder, by Marscay) & 6YO mare Oriental Ruby (Street Cry-Oriental, by Monde Bleu). Atlantic Jewel reinforced her status as the pre-eminent racehorse in Australasia with this facile victory which took her record to 9 wins (including last start's Gr1 Memsie Stakes, Gr1 Thousand Guineas, Gr1 All Aged Stakes, Gr2 Wakeful Stakes & Gr2 Sapphire Stakes) from 9 starts.
