Atomic Force Wins Gr1 The Galaxy

Monday, 18th April 2011

Former Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Atomic Force (Danehill Dancer-Show Of Force, by Luskin Star) scored a 2.75-lengths victory in the $350,000 Gr1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick. Atomic Force (ridden by Tim Clark for trainer Darren Smith) defeated fellow 5YO gelding Thankgodyou'rehere (Secret Savings-Winifred's Prayer, by Tierce) & 5YO entire Cardinal Virtue (Elusive Quality-Valourina, by Snippets). Atomic Force (a $50,000 yearling consigned by Raheen Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 8 wins (also including March's Listed Maurice McCarten Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill) & 8 placings (including January's Magic Millions Sprint over 1000m at the Gold Coast & 2008's Gr3 San Domenico Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill Gardens) from 27 starts for $564,100 earnings.
