Atlantic Jewel Ruled Out of 2012 Cox Plate

Unbeaten mare Atlantic Jewel has been ruled out of the 2012 Cox Plate after suffering a leg injury.

Atlantic Jewel has been ruled out of the spring with injury

The Mark Kavanah-trained four-year-old will play no part in the spring after bumping her off-fore leg two weeks ago which has caused a lesion to form.

Unbeaten from seven career starts, Atlantic Jewel was a clear favourite in early Cox Plate markets at around the $4.00 mark, leaving More Joyous to assume slight favouritism ahead of stablemate Pierro.

Trainer Mark Kavanagh told Racing Victoria she is unlikely to be able to resume training for eight weeks but is confident she will make a full recovery.

“We will continue to assess the injury and it would be my opinion at this stage that she will be unable to resume full training for eight weeks, Kavanagh said.

“It may be the end of the spring, but it’s not the end of the horse.”

The Fastnet Rock mare has already scored victory twice at Group 1 level, winning the Thousand Guineas last spring and the All Aged Stakes in the autumn.

Atlantic Jewel is the third star horse confirmed to miss the 2012 Melbourne Spring Carnival, with Black Caviar and Lucash Cranach also absent.

Apart from the two Group 1 wins, career highlights for Atlantic Jewel have come in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes and the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes.

While the unbeaten star will not play any part in the spring, a close relation might.

Three-quarter sister to the mare Atlantic Jewel impressed when producing a dominant performance to win on debut at Swan Hill on Monday.
