KYPRIOS (IRE) (c, 2, Galileo {Ire}–Polished Gem {Ire} {Broodmare of the Year-Ire}, by Danehill) was bustled along in snatches throughout this extended one-mile slog in deep mud. Rousted into third turning for home, the 9-4 second choice kept on resolutely under unrelenting pressure in the straight to nail Lifetime Legend (Ire) (Pride of Dubai {Aus}) by 3/4-of-a-length in the final strides. “He's not that much of a worker at home and he took a bit of stoking up there,” said, understated winning rider Seamus Heffernan after steering home a first winner for the Aidan O'Brien-Moyglare axis. “He's a clear-winded type that's probably a classy stayer.” Kyprios is the latest foal and becomes the 10th scorer from as many runners produced by 2015 Broodmare of the Year Polished Gem (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), herself a winning daughter of G1 Irish 1000 Guineas heroine Trusted Partner (Affirmed). The May-foaled chestnut is kin to six black-type winners headed by last year's G1 Irish St Leger heroine Search For a Song (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), G1 Prince of Wales's S.-winning sire Free Eagle (Ire) (High Chaparral {Ire}) and MGSW G2 British Champions Fillies & Mares S. victress Sapphire (Ire) (Medicean {GB}). Another half-sister, Amber Romance (Ire) (Bahamian Bounty {GB}), has a Kingman (GB) filly slated to sell as hip 473 (walking video) through South Point Sales Agency at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase on Sept. 9-10 in Lexington, KY. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $11,696.
