The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 1 All Aged Stakes, which is due to run at Royal Randwick racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.
Atlantic Jewel has accepted for the 2012 All Aged Stakes, after nominating for both this race and the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes on the same day.
The three-year-old filly has won all six of her previous race starts and will be facing the older horses for the first time in a Group 1 race.
Atlantic Jewel’s latest win came in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes, where she won the race by four lengths ahead of Mid Summer Music and Lady’s Angel.
Jockey Michael Rodd believes the Fastnet Rock filly will be even better for Saturday’s 2012 All Aged Stakes.
“She is going great. She has pulled up very well,” Rodd said
“I think it was a good call to stick at the 1,400 at weight-for-age where she is pretty well in.
“I have been on some nice horses but she’s just freakish in every way and in everything she does.
“I’m looking forward to Saturday. A Group One win against the older horses would be a real feather in her cap at this stage of her career.”
Atlantic Jewel has drawn barrier one for the 2012 All Aged Stakes and will carry the lightest weight of 54.5 kilograms in the race.
Rain Affair is also included in the 2012 All Aged Stakes and has drawn the widest barrier of seven.
The Commands gelding will be ridden by jockey Christian Reith and will carry 59 kilograms.
Albert The Fat and Ofcourseican are also included in the 2012 All Aged Stakes final field.
