Invincible Spirit Adds Irish Gr3
In Ireland overnight, former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a group success when 5YO entire Kargali (Invincible Spirit-Karliyka, by Last Tycoon) scored a 0.75-length victory in the €60,000 (A$90,000) Gr3 Gladness Stakes (7 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at The Curragh to better his 3rd-placing in this same race last year. Kargali (ridden by Johnny Murtagh for trainer Luke Comer) defeated favoured 4YO entire Rayeni (Indian Ridge-Rayyana, by Rainbow Quest) & fellow 4YO entire Croisultan (Refuse To Bend-Zoudie, by Ezzoud). Last year Kargali also won Ireland's Listed Heritage Stakes (8 furlongs) at Leopardstown.
