With three wins and two seconds from seven starts for earnings of $74,605, Princess Phoenix was voted 2015 Victorian Two-Year-Old Filly of the Year.
The family also includes rising star squaregaiter Eljaykay Phoenix.
On the subject of Group One winners, Lots 15 (colt) and 9 (filly) are closely-related and hale from the same family as Breeders’ Crown champion, Galleons Assassin and Mountain Gold.
The Benstud Lots are 9, 15, 30, 36 and 45.
