Seven for Charm Spirit


Windsor Park shuttler Charm Spirit (Invincible Spirit) sired three new winners last week, taking his overall tally of first crop victors in Europe to seven.

The first of the week was Forseti (2 c ex Ravensburg by Raven's Pass) who completed a double on the day for Charm Spirit when running out a ready winner at Salisbury on Wednesday.

On Friday, Aquarius (2 f ex Puzzled by Peintre Celebre) became the sixth winner for her first season sire when scoring on debut at Newmarket for Mick Appleby, before Early Time (2 f ex Every Time by Pivotal) broke her maiden at the second time of asking over 1200 metres in France on Sunday, to provide Charm Spirit with his fourth winner in five days.

Triple Group 1-winning miler Charm Spirit stood this season in France at the Aga Khan’s Haras de Bonneval for €20,000 and shuttles to Windsor Park Stud where his service fee is on application.
