PHOENIX STAR (IRE) (c, 2, Alhebayeb {Ire}–Volcanic Lady {Ire}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}), who was last of seven behind TDN Rising Star Legends of War (Scat Daddy) over six furlongs here on debut May 23, was keen under restraint early behind the leaders. Switched stand’s side when still at the back of the main group with two furlongs remaining, the 10-1 shot delivered a surge to lead 150 yards out and draw away for a convincing 1 3/4-length success from Street Parade (GB) (Swiss Spirit {GB}). In doing, so he becomes the first winner for Tara Stud’s G2 July S.-winning first-season sire (by Dark Angel {Ire}). The dam, who also has a yearling filly by Raven’s Pass, is a half to the dams of the G1 Irish Oaks and G1 Prix de l’Opera heroine Covert Love (Ire) (Azamour {Ire}) and the G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud third Miss You Too (GB) (Montjeu {Ire}).
