Atlantic Jewel Showing Promise Ahead of 2013 Melbourne Spring Carnival

Australia may have lost its biggest turf superstar to retirement this week but the signs are positive about Atlantic Jewel, one of the country’s other star mares.

The four-year-old is continuing her road back from a serious tendon injury and is now up to three-quarter pace work.

Atlantic Jewel was favourite for the Cox Plate before injury ended her spring campaign before it even began but regular jockey Michael Rodd said the signs are positive she can play a part at this year’s 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“She looks fantastic and has really filled out. Having spent a lot of time in the paddock you’d expect that, but she’s not too big or heavy, so that’s a plus,” Rodd told Racing Victoria.

“At the end of the day, we want to show everyone how good she really is as a racehorse and what she can do.”

Rodd said he is not sure what connections have in mind for the unbeaten mare but said the Cox Plate would be an ideal target if she can get back to her best.

“I’d say her target this Spring is the Cox Plate, but it will be one race at a time and it’s up to the connections on what happens with her,” he said.

Atlantic Jewel hasn’t been defeated in seven starts since debuting in August 2011.

In her debut campaign she won the Group 1 Thousand Guineas by three lengths and the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes by seven lengths.

The Mark Kavanagh-trained horse returned last autumn to win the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes by four lengths and run down Rain Affair for a 1 1/2 length win in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes.

Atlantic Jewel might not be back until the spring but there are plenty of stars on show at Randwick this weekend and bookmaker.com.au has great odds on all the Doncaster Day action.
