ALPINE STAR (IRE) (Sea the Moon {Ger}) is a half-sister to the four-times Group 1 winner Alpha Centauri (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}) who debuts for the same Niarchos Family-Jessie Harrington axis. The March-foaled chestnut meets a trio from Ballydoyle headed by Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a half-sister to the classy Lucky Kristale (GB) (Lucky Story) who was second to another of the Harrington stable’s juveniles in TDN Rising Star Windracer (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}) in a Curragh maiden last month.
