Overnight treble for Charm Spirit
19 MAR 2019
Leading Freshman Sire Charm Spirit (Invincible Spirit) continued his hot run of success in Europe with a hat trick of winners in England overnight at 1400m, 1600m & 2000m.
Invincible Spirit’s highest earning son also enjoyed success earlier in the week at Longchamp in Paris when the exciting Aga Khan-bred and raced 3YO colt Shendam bolted in over 1,600m at their Gr.1 Grand Prix de Paris meeting.
Their success provided Charm Spirit with eight winners in just over a week including in Australia where his 2YO son Sansom scored back to back wins for leading Melbourne trainer Phillip Stokes.
Charm Spirit has already sired leading NZ 2YO filly Aretha, winner of the Gr.2 Matamata Breeders Stakes, who is targeting Spring riches in both Australia and NZ.
A triple Gr.1 winning miler of the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp and Ascot’s showpiece championship mile event the Queen Elizabeth 11 Stakes, Charm Spirit has arrived back in NZ to stand at Windsor Park Stud.
