Invincible Spirit Adds UK Gr3

Monday, 12th October 2009

In the UK, former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a juvenile group success when his colt Our Jonathan (Invincible Spirit-Sheikn Swing, by Celtic Swing) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the £55,000 (A$100,00) Gr3 Cornwallis Stakes (5 furlongs) for 2YOs at Ascot. Our Jonathan (ridden by Jamie Spencer for trainer Kevin Ryan) scored by a neck from Irish-bred colt Taajub (Exceed And Excel-Purple Tiger, by Rainbow Quest) with a further nose to fellow colt Iver Bridge Lad (Avonbridge-Fittonia, by Ashkalani). Our Jonathan was a 30,000 guineas (A$57,000) weanling at the 2007 UK Tattersalls December sale & later a 25,000 guineas (A$48,000) 2YO at this year's Tattersalls Guineas Sale. Overall he now has 3 wins (also including August's Irish Listed Tipperary Stakes over 5 furlongs at Dundalk) & a placing from 5 starts for £67,556 (A$123,000) earnings.
