Atomica destroys line-up to romp I'm Satisfied Trophy

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Spencer Darlington

Derby and 1000 Guineas winner Atomica blew away the opposition to romp the I'm Satisfied Trophy, the feature event over 6 furlongs on Saturday’s 10 race card at Caymanas Park.

The Gary Subratie-trained 3 year old chestnut filly who was having her first outing since her Derby victory on August 6, was made  the howling 2-5 favourite, racing against older horses for the first time in the $1.29 million Open Allowance contest for 3 year old and up. The super filly proceeded to go from gate to wire under leading jockey Dane Dawkins.

Atomica who closed out a 4-timer for Dawkins and Subratie on the programme, came home in a sizzling stakes record time of 1 minute, ten-and-four-fifths of a second, behind cracking splits of 22.2 and 45.3, winning by seven-and-a-half lengths.

With the 4-timer Dawkins took his tally for the season to 80 wins, 7 clear of reigning champion Anthony Thomas in the race for the jockey's championship. Thomas had one win on the card. Racing continues next Saturday.
