Mark Kavanagh’s Atlantic Jewel has proven herself too good for the rest of the 2011 Thousand Guineas field to win the race today October 12, 2011.
Atlantic Jewel won the Thousand Guineas 2011 by an incredible three lengths ahead of second place-getter Mosheen and third place-getter Sharnee Rose.
The three-year-old filly jumped from barrier four and went to the back of the pack early before making a late charge down the straight with jockey Michael Rodd at the reigns.
“These (horses) don’t come along very often,” Kavanagh said after the race.
“She can do many things that I haven’t seen horses do before.”
While there was speculation connections would possibly pay the $130,000 late entry fee to give Atlantic Jewel a run in the 2011 Cox Plate, Kavanagh quickly dismissed the rumours.
“No, she’s a good filly we don’t want to gut here,” Kavanagh said.
“She’s something else and we probably should give her a chance to get there (by giving her a break).”
