Atlantic Jewel has now won all eight of her race starts and has earned more than $1.13 million in prize money during her horse racing career.
Ferlax finished second in the 2013 Memsie Stakes, while Super Coolplaced in third position.
Trainer Mark Kavanagh couldn’t hide his emotion after Atlantic Jewel’s magnificent return to racing in the 2013 Memsie Stakes.
“I’m speechless I really am,” he said.
“There’s plenty of options and I’m just going to enjoy this moment for the time being.
“She’s got so much improvement in her it’s frightening.”
Michael Rodd was the jockey aboard Atlantic Jewel for head turning return to racing in the 2013 Memsie Stakes.
“We know how good she is,” Rodd said.
“The only thing today that was going to beat her was bad luck or a bad ride.
“As soon as I got to the half mile and I was in that position the race was over.
“She lets go so quick. It’s an amazing feeling to be on top of her.
“If there was something in front of her I’m sure she would have chased it.
“It’s a relief more than anything.
“There’s a lot of fun ahead in the spring carnival.”
