2012 Cox Plate Bound Atlantic Jewel Training Herself

Mark Kavanagh has declared Atlantic Jewel as one of the easiest horses he has ever had the pleasure of preparing, the former Melbourne Cup winning trainer confident she will come on as a four-year-old as she heads towards the Cox Plate 2012 this spring.

The unbeaten daughter of Fastnet Rock continues to dominate the futures betting markets for both the 2012 Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate after nominations for the two Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival majors were taken by Racing Victoria on Tuesday.

Of the two features it is the $3 million Group 1 WS Tatts Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Saturday October 27 that Atlantic Jewel is best fancied for.

A winner of all seven of her career starts to date including two elite levels with an easy three length success in last year’s Thousand Guineas and most recently in the All Aged Stakes at Randwick on Sydney Cup Day in April, Atlantic Jewel practically “trains herself” according to a very modest Kavanagh.

“She trains herself, really,” Kavanagh said.

“I put the saddle on and point her in the right direction.

“But she does most of it, she’s a dream.”

Not only is Atlantic Jewel a dream to train but she is also one of the most exciting and promising horses of any age or sex heading into the new season.

“She is an exciting horse and we are hoping she will continue on her winning ways,” Kavanagh said.

Having already amassed $927,925 in prize money she has well rewarded her connections at Coolmore who purchased her for $320,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales.

She is already one of the most valuable broodmare prospects in Australia too being out of Zabeel mare Regard who won two of her three starts in a short-lived career.

After her future retirement from racing however it is not only her breeding but the high class pedigree of the Coolmore-owned stallions she has the chance to be bred with that make her and her future progeny all the more valuable.

But first the Cox Plate 2012.

Atlantic Jewel is tipped to resume racing at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday August 18 in either the $2200,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) where she would take on the boys under weight-for-age conditions, or the mares-only $150,000 Group 2 WW Cockram Stakes (1200m).

If she isn’t ready in time for Saturday week Kavanagh will save her for the $220,000 Group 2 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 1.

From there her spring preparation is still up in the air with a more confirmed campaign to be discussed by Kavanagh and Coolmore at the end of the week.

But the one definite is the Cox Plate, Kavanagh confident it is the right race for her with Atlantic Jewel having won her sole start at Moonee Valley to date and her only 2000m assignment when putting seven lengths on Rahveel in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes at Flemington last Victoria Derby Day.

“The programming has not been locked in stone yet,” Kavanagh said.

“I am going to sit down with the Coolmore boys on Sunday night and we will map something out.

“But the Cox Plate is there for her.

“She’s won at her only attempt at Moonee Valley and she won her only run at 2000 metres by seven lengths.”

Cox Plate 2012 first acceptances will be taken on September 11.
