Gary Subratie and Don Wehby’s Oakridge Farms’ speedster, ATOMICA, has no equal in Saturday’s 1000 Guineas going a mile at Caymanas Park.

Unbeaten in four starts, the Nuclear Wayne-Honkeytonkville chestnut quickster has won her Guineas prep races in times equalling the colts’ and geldings’ performances in their warm-up races.

ATOMICA won the Thornbird and Portmore Stakes with ridiculous ease. She was lonely in a six-length win in the seven-furlong Thornbird Stakes and returned with a 10-length romp in the Portmore at seven and a half furlongs.

ATOMICA’s 1:27.0 in the April 2 Thornbird Stakes equalled EMPEROROFTHECATS’ clocking a day later in the Prince Consort. She followed with 1:32.3 in the Portmore, faster than BLUE VINYL’s 1:32.4 in the Kingston for colts and geldings.

Dane Dawkins, who has been a board the filly for her last three starts, will again partner her in a small eight-horse field.

The 1000 Guineas is the ninth of 11 races scheduled. First post is 11:30 am.
