Last year’s winner Oasis Bloom placed second, while Oriental Ruby finished in third position.
Atlantic Jewel has now won all nine of her race starts and has earned more than $1.27 million in prize money during her horse racing career.
Trainer Mark Kavanagh was confident before the 2013 WH Stocks Stakes had even run.
“It blew away the rust last start and she looks in fine condition today,” Kavanagh said.
“(The plan is to) stay out of trouble and come back in once piece and win the race.”
Kavanagh was pleased to see what Atlantic Jewel was doing for racing.
“It’s pretty cool. There were a couple of hundred people there to watch her saddle up.”
After the race Kavanagh was blown away by Atlantic Jewel’s performance.
“That was just a little course proper gallop wasn’t it?” he said.
“She’s certainly a special horse.
“There’s still plenty of improvement in her.”
Jockey Michael Rodd was once again aboard Atlantic Jewel in the 2013 WH Stocks Stakes.
“She’s got a real high cruising speed and she puts them away pretty easily,” Rodd said.
“It’s nice to think that she’s brought a few more people through the gates.
“The momentum will keep building.”
