Alain and Gerard Wertheimer's hitherto unraced 2-year-old filly Kelina (Ire) (Frankel {GB}-Incahoots {GB}, by Oasis Dream {GB}) was let go at odds of 29-5 for Saturday's Prix des Marettes at Deauville and returned home with a 'TDN Rising Star' tag after posting a taking pillar-to-post performance in the 7 1/2-furlong debutantes' heat. The eventual winner was the sharpest of one dozen into stride and seized an immediate lead. Holding sway throughout, she was shaken up when threatened passing the quarter-mile marker and ran on strongly once quickening clear approaching the eighth pole to easily outclass Shalromy (Fr) (Shalaa {Ire}) by an impressive three lengths.

Kelina is the third of five foals and second scorer from as many runners produced by Listed Prix Saonois victrix Incahoots (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), herself a full-sister to dual stakes-winning G3 Prix de Lieurey third Dream Clover (GB) out of G3 Prix de Flore winner In Clover (GB) (Inchinor {GB}). Produce of the February-foaled homebred bay's second dam also includes G1 Prix du Cadran victor Call The Wind (GB) (Frankel {GB}), G1 Prix Rothschild heroine With You (GB) (Dansili {GB}), G1 Prix de l'Opera victrix We Are (Ire) (Dansili {GB}) and Listed Grand Prix Anjou Bretagne winner In Crowd (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}). In Clover is also the second dam of this term's G1 Prix Saint-Alary third Queen Trezy (Fr) (Almanzor {Fr}). Kelina is full to a weanling colt and a half to Listed Prix Petite Etoile runner-up Ansilia (Ire) (Dansili {GB}) and a yearling colt by Lope De Vega (Ire).
