Invincible Spirit Adds UK Gr2 Quinella
Last year's European 1st Season sire sensation & 2006 Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a UK juvenile group quinella when daughter Fleeting Spirit (Invincible Spirit-Millennium Tale, by Distant Relative) scored a 1.75-lengths victory against the males in the £75,000 (A$180,000) Gr2 Flying Childers Stakes (5 furlongs) for 2YOs at Doncaster. Fleeting Spirit (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Jeremy Noseda) defeated the colt Spirit of Sharjah (Invincible Spirit-Rathbawn Realm, by Doulab) & fellow filly Cute As (Fath-John's Ballad, by Ballad Rock). Fleeting Spirit now has 3 wins (also including the UK Gr3 Molecomb Stakes over 5 furlongs at Goodwood on July 31) & a last start placing (in August's UK Gr2 Lowther Stakes over 6 furlongs at York) from 4 starts.
