Atomic Force Gives Trainer First Group 1 In The Galaxy

Atomic Force

Atomic Force wins The Galaxy at Royal Randwick

Atomic Force has proven too good for remainder of the Group 1 The Galaxy field, winning the $350,000 race by two and three-quarter lengths.

The five-year-old gelding has now won eight of his 27 race starts and is a star in the eyes of his grateful owners, who couldn’t hold back tears as their horse passed the post first.

The win by Atomic Force was the first Group 1 victory for thankful trainer Darren Smith.

“The horse is going terrific,” Smith said.

“It’s my first group one.”

Smith said he accredits Atomic Force’s win to proper surroundings back home.

“He’s got a nice paddock at home on the farm,” Smith said.

While Smith has trained some talented horses, Atomic Force is the first that is of Group 1 winning quality.

“We’ve had some handy horses but we’ve never been quite able to get there,” he said.

Dean Watt, owner of Dynamic Syndications who syndicated Atomic Force, was wrapped with the run.

“This was a horse that only 14 horses ago it was a city reject,” Mr Watt said.

Jockey Tim Clark backed up his winning ride in the Doncaster Mile in the race before to ride Atomic Force to victory in The Galaxy.

“As far out as the 600m he has the race one,” Clark said.

“It’s a huge thrill and a huge buzz and I’m sure it’s going to do my career the world of good.”
