Invincible Spirit Adds UK Black-Type
On the UK track overnight, former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a black-type success when Godolphin’s Irish-bred 3YO filly Moonlife (Invincible Spirit-Marania, by Marju) scored a 2.25-lengths victory in the £40,000 (A$72,000) Listed Fleur De Lys Fillies Stakes (8 furlongs on all-weather) for fillies & mares at Lingfield Park. Moonlife (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor) defeated fellow 3YO fillies Ahla Wasahl (Dubai Destination-In Full Cry, by Seattle Slew) & Apple Charlotte (Royal Applause-Maid Of Camelot, by Caerleon). Previously this season, Moonlife finished runner-up in May’s UK Listed Michael Seely Memorial Fillies Stakes (8 furlongs) at York & last year as a juvenile he finished runner-up in the UK Gr3 Oh So Sharp Stakes (7 furlongs) at Newmarket.
