What the Nation is saying about the 2011 Atalanta Stakes (LS)...

this field is loaded with talent...
The listed Atlanta Stakes run's on Saturday at Sandown in the UK. Even though it's a listed stakes, I added it to the stakes tracker because this may be one of the deepest listed stakes fields for fillies and mares that I've ever seen!! The entries into this race reads like a who's-who among Euro turf fillies and mares. From handicap, to listed, to G3, to G2, all the way up to G1 winners set to go in the Atlanta Stakes. Trainer Mike De Kock has his 2 brilliant fillies from Dubai, both Reem and Raihana entered here. As well as 2010 G1 Falmouth Stakes winner, Music Show. G2 Windsor Forest Stakes winner, and G1 Sun Chariot Stakes 2nd, who also ran well in Dubai, Strawberrydaiquiri, is in the field. As well as Brian Meehan's very talented daughter of Bernardini, Theysken's Theory. Plus many other very talented fillies and mares. I urge you to take a look at the 17 runner field for this card at Sandown on Saturday, and I think you'll see the appeal of this race as easily as I did.
