Atlantic Jewel in Doubt for 2013 Autumn Carnival Return

The racing future of Mark Kavanagh’s spruik mare Atlantic Jewel remains up in the air with a return in time for next year’s autumn carnival highly unlikely.

Atlantic Jewel will undergo her latest scan in January to help reveal whether she can race again

The now four-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock earned her racing strikes and close to $930,000 as a three-year-old winning all seven of her opening career starts.

Her most notable victories included a three length romp over multiple Group 1 champion Mosheen in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) where she overcame multiple cases of interference, and a seven length annihilation of her competitors in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival last year.

She returned in April and smashed it out of the ballpark again putting an easy four lengths on subsequent Stradbroke Handicap winner Mid Summer Music in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) before her most recent run where she beat home the boys in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick on Sydney Cup Day.

It has been an anxious time for Kavanagh and connections ever since however after Atlantic Jewel injured herself after the All Aged missing her chance to run again in 2012, the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) having been high on the agenda.

The latest of many scans to reveal the progress to her injured tendon will happen in January the results of which will give her trainer a better idea of where she is at and what the future holds for the superstar.

“She has been out nearly four months now and is still resting, but we are due to conduct further tests on her leg in January,” Kavanagh said.

“She had an MRI scan to start with and then she was scanned again about eight weeks ago. This next scan will give us a good idea of her healing rate.”

While he would ultimately love to get Atlantic Jewel back to race fitness and back to track Kavanagh said that they would not pencil in any racing plans until they were 100 percent confident she would be making a full recovery.

“The horse’s welfare is the most important thing and we will make no future plans until after those scans are done and we get her back in work,” he said.

“It’s no good saying we are maybe going to do this or maybe going to do that, we are going to be totally governed by what the scans tell us.”
