Atmospherical Wins Listed Denise's Joy Stakes
At Scone in the Hunter Valley, ill-fated Widden Stud sire Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Atmospherical (Northern Meteor-Faster Pussycat, by Flying Spur) scored by 0.2-length for trainer David Pfeiffer in the $140,000 Listed Denise's Joy Stakes (1100m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Fare Well (Exceed and Excel-River Dove, by Hurricane Sky) & Miss Alibi (Alert-Hurriby, by Hurricane Sky). This was Atmospherical's maiden stakes victory and took her record to 4 wins from 5 starts for $153,750 earnings. Atmospherical was passed in for $36,000 at the 2012 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale and was retained to race by connections of her breeder Widden Stud.
