Throwback Race For Tuesday

Phoenix Of Spain

With the Irish 2000 Guineas taking place on Friday we thought it would be fitting to look back at last year's renewal where Phoenix Of Spain for trainer Charles Hills shocked everyone by bolting up at the Curragh.

The now four year old, was a bright two year old placing in some big races but on his three year old debut as emphatic under a superb ride by Jamie Spencer.

Phoenix Of Spain got to the front with two furlongs to go and put the race to bed in a matter of strides to see of Too Darn Hot by around four Lengths.

It was the colts best performance of the season and only Group One during his career.
