Invincible Spirit Adds UK Black-Type
In the UK, former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Beyond Desire (Invincible Spirit-Compradore, by Mujtahid) returned from an 8-months spell to score a 2.25-lengths victory against older rivals in the £40,000 (A$69,000) Listed Cecil Frail Stakes (6 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Haydock. Beyond Desire (ridden by Neil Callan for trainer Michael Jarvis) defeated fellow 3YO filly Astrophysical Jet (Dubawi-Common Knowledge, by Rainbow Quest) & Irish-bred 4YO mare Excellerator (Exceed And Excel-Amsicora, by Cadeaux Genereux). Beyond Desire was a £55,000 (A$95,000) yearling at the 2008 Doncaster August Sale. Overall she now has 2 wins & a runner-up (in 2009's Gr2 Lowther Stakes over 6 furlongs at York) from 4 starts for £60,939 (A$105,000) earnings.
