Sent off the 15-8 favorite, Final Frontier (Ire) broke professionally and enjoyed a perfect tow under cover in fifth throughout the early stages. Working his way to the lead with a furlong remaining, the €37,000 Goffs Orby purchase drew away to register an impressive 4 1/2-length score from Aspar (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}). Final Frontier becomes the third winner for his first-season sire (by Diktat {GB}). “He's entered in a few races, including the [Sept. 13] G1 National S., but we'll let the dust settle until later in the day and see what happens,” trainer Jessie Harrington explained. “He seemed to stay that six furlongs very well.” Harrington won the National S. in 2010 with Pathfork (Distorted Humor).
