Godolphin's G1 Prix Marcel Boussac nominee Bauhinia (Ire) (Too Darn Hot {GB}–Desert Blossom {Ire}, by Shamardal) justified that lofty entry and earned a 'TDN Rising Star' rosette with a taking debut display in Thursday's Prix de la Cascade at ParisLongchamp.

Racing a shade keenly under a firm grip through halfway in this one-mile debutantes' test, the 23-10 favourite loomed large hard on the steel passing the quarter-mile marker and quickened stylishly under mild coaxing once seizing control approaching the final furlong to easily account for Cetera (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}) by an impressive two lengths. She becomes the 12th winner, and first Rising Star, for her freshman sire (by Dubawi {Ire}).

“She is a very nice filly, she won easily and has plenty of talent,” said winning rider Bauyrzhan Murzabayev.

Bauhinia is the sixth foal and scorer thrown by G2 Rockfel S. third Desert Blossom (Ire) (Shamardal), herself out of G3 Prestige S. third Elshamms (GB) (Zafonic). Elshamms, a daughter of G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches third Gharam (Green Dancer), also produced Listed Hyde S. victor Flaming Spear (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) and Listed Jebel Ali Sprint winner Taqseem (Ire) (Fantastic Light). Her descendants include Listed Marygate Fillies S. runner-up Silk Bow (GB) (Elusive City) and Listed National S. second Wings Of A Dove (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}). The March-foaled homebred bay is kin to Listed Valiant S. victrix and G3 Prix Bertrand de Tarragon and G3 Atalanta S. runner-up Duneflower (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and weanling colt by Dark Angel (Ire).
