2013 JJ Atkins – First Acceptances Released

May 29th, 2013

First acceptances have been taken for the Group 1 JJ Atkins, which will take place at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday June 8, 2013.

Just 17 horses remain in the 2013 Queensland Derby first acceptances, one being Zoustar.


Zoustar is part of the 2013 JJ Atkins first acceptances. Picture by Daniel Costello.

Zoustar has won all three of his race starts and has earned more than $237,000 in prize money during his short horse racing career.

The Northern Meteor colt won his most recent start in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes by an impressive 1.3 lengths at Doomben Racecourse on May 25.

Zoustar will be having his first race start at Eagle Farm when he attempts to claim his first career Group 1 title in the 2013 JJ Atkins.

Also included in the 2013 JJ Atkins first acceptances is stable mate Vilanova.

Vilanova has won one of his six race starts and has earned more than $140,000 in prize money during his career.

The Commands colt also placed second in the Group 2 Champagne Classic at Eagle Farm behind Vo Heart in his first-up start this campaign.

Vilanova will look to turn the tables on Zoustar when they line up for the 2013 JJ Atkins next weekend.

Octane Flyer, The Voice and Hooked are also included in the 2013 Queensland Derby first acceptances.
