Invincible Spirit Adds UK Black-Type
In the UK, former Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a black-type success when 4YO entire Conquest (Invincible Spirit-Aguinaga, by Machiavellian) scored a 2-lengths victory in the £30,000 (A$66,000) Listed Hever Sprint Stakes (5 furlongs on the all-weather track) for 4YOs & up at Lingfield Park. Conquest (ridden by Jimmy Fortune for trainer William Haggas) defeated Matsunosuke (Magic Ring-Lon Isa, by Grey Desire) & Stoneacre Lad (Bluebird-Jay And-a, by Elbio). As a juvenile, Conquest won the 2006 Gr2 Gimcrack Stakes (6 furlongs) at York & finished runner-up in Listed Windsor Castle Stakes (5 furlongs) at Royal Ascot.
