Atomium is a horse we listed in the past who finds himself once again ready to move on from racing. A lean, tall drink of water, Atomium’s trainer joked that he was put together with pieces and parts of many different horses and another trainer in the shedrow laughingly concurred, but he has remained absolutely sound during his racing career. He was very energetic for his interview and exuberant for his jog video, but the volunteers pegged him as an athletic boy with a tall, uphill build, suited for eventing or foxhunting, and an elegant head and expression. His trainer told us that Atomium is a kind horse who craves attention, loves carrots and is struggling to get through his next condition on the track. He is a Kentucky bred by Latent Heat (Maria’s Mon)out of a Distorted Humor dam who has compiled a decent race record of 2 wins, 3 seconds and 5 thirds out of 32 lifetime starts. After Atomium went back into his stall we lingered with his trainer and Atomium was very interested in joining the conversation. Again we commented on his beautiful head and kind expression. His trainer had him turned out all winter with a filly and Atomium was a gentleman and perfectly behaved on the farm. On the track he is a mild cribber, easily controlled with a collar which he does not need when on the farm. Tall, dark and handsome should get this guy noticed in whatever direction you take him.
