Following on where the colt Tumbler (Fr) (Kingman {GB}) had left off at Saint-Cloud on Thursday, Godolphin's filly Life in Motion (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) earned TDN Rising Star status in the Prix Tenebreuse also for newcomers over seven furlongs. Settled in fourth early on the testing ground by Mickael Barzalona, the daughter of the G1 Prix Saint-Alary Wavering (Ire) (Refuse To Bend {Ire}) arrived on the front end full of running with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining. Pushed out from there, the Andre Fabre-trained 7-10 favourite was able to secure a facile five-length success from Indian Wish (Fr) (The Grey Gatsby {Ire}), with Roselyne (Fr) (Dariyan {Fr}) a further three lengths away in third as they finished strung out.

"She is still very immature, but goes to great lengths to do things right and I really liked her way of doing things," said winning rider Mickael Barzalona. "We could have won more easily, but she was on and off the bit in behind the leading horses. I allowed her to relax and let her come back to me in her own time. Once we quickened to the front, I didn't look back to see how far she won by and she still had plenty in reserve at the line."

The dam has also produced the G3 Prix de Flore runner-up Switching (Street Cry {Ire}) and her G3 Prix Chloe-placed full-sister Flowrider, who was fourth in the Saint-Alary. The second dam Summertime Legacy (GB) (Darshaan {GB}) took the G3 Prix des Reservoirs and was third in the Saint-Alary herself before also producing the former TDN Rising Star and G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Mandaean (GB) (Manduro {Ger}). Her daughter Winters Moon (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}) was third in the G1 Fillies Mile before providing these connections with the G1 Prix Morny and G1 Middle Park S. hero Earthlight (Ire) (Shamardal), while another of Wavering's half-sisters Lavender and Lace (GB) (Barathea {Ire} is responsible for the G2 Superlative S. third Maxi Boy (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}). Life In Motion, who becomes the 12th TDN Rising Star for his sire, is followed by a yearling son of Shamardal.
