First Stakes Winner For Highland Reel, as Atamisque Takes G2 Premio Dormello

Highland Reel has sired his first stakes winner with the filly Atamisque taking the G2 Premio Dormello | Coolmore


Atamisque (Ire) (Highland Reel {Ire}), who was a course-and-distance winner when unveiled on Oct. 3, gave her sire his first black-type winner and group scorer in one fell swoop with a 3 1/2-length success in the G2 Premio Dormello in Rome on Sunday.

The 6-5 crowd's pick tracked the pace in sixth through the early going as Terra Del Sole (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}) showed the way. That rival hugged the rail into the home straight as the rest of the field shifted away from the inside and was still clinging to the lead with 400 metres remaining. Asked for her bid out in the centre of the course, the bay drew level with new leader Jacinda at the furlong grounds, dismissed that rival handily and quickened well to win going away. Jacinda was 1 3/4 lengths to the good of a stubborn Terra Del Sole in third.


Pedigree Notes

Atamisque is the first foal out of Aury Touch, who won a pair of Italian listed stakes and was second in another six. After foaling the winner, the daughter of Pounced has since produced a yearling filly named French Fries (Ire) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) and a weaning colt by Gleneagles (Ire). The dam is a half-sister to the group-placed Amyntas (Ity) (Desert Prince {Ire}), while Atamisque's third dam is three-time U.S. graded winner Nasty Storm (Gulch), who was also second in the GI Spinaway S. The last-named is the dam of dual Group 3 winner and G1 Phoenix S. third Actress (Ire) (Declaration of War).
