Haras Voltaire’s Andre Fabre trainee Gun Of Brixton (Fr) (Frankel {GB}–Cat Kate {Ire}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}) finished 3/4-of-a-length behind ‘TDN Rising Star‘ Tiego The First (Fr) (Blue Point {Ire}) at Saint-Cloud last month and returned to the same venue to register a stylish victory in Tuesday’s Prix Chateau Bouscaut over seven furlongs.

2nd-Saint-Cloud, €30,000, Mdn, 6-11, 2yo, c/g, 7fT, 1:30.51, gd.
GUN OF BRIXTON (FR) (c, 2, Frankel {GB}–Cat Kate {Ire}, by Invincible Spirit {Ire}), who encountered the ‘TDN Rising Star‘ performance of Tiego The First (Fr) (Blue Point {Ire}) when a May 20 debut second over six furlongs at this venue last time, broke well to lead from flagfall in this return.

Holding sway throughout, the 3-5 favourite was nudged safely clear approaching the final furlong and kept on strongly under minimal urging in the latter stages to easily account for Naked Memories (Fr) (Mehmas {Ire}) by two lengths.

Gun Of Brixton is the lone reported foal produced by a half-sister to five black-type performers headed by G1 Derby and G1 Irish Derby hero Harzand (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) and G3 Silver Flash S.-winning G1 Moyglare Stud S. third Harasiya (Ire) (Pivotal {GB}). Descendants of the latter include last year’s runaway G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. victor Big Rock (Fr) (Rock Of Gibraltar {Ire}).

The January-foaled homebred’s second dam is G3 Athasi S. victrix Hazariya (Ire) (Xaar {GB}), herself a half-sister to dual Group 1-placed G3 Blue Wind S. victrix Hazarista (Ire) (Barathea {Ire}) and to the dam of G1 British Champions Fillies & Mares and G1 Coronation Cup heroine Emily Upjohn (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}).

Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, €21,000. Video, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
