Invincible Spirit Adds French Gr3
In France overnight, Irish National Stud-based former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a group success when George Strawbridge's UK-bred daughter Moonlight Cloud (Invincible Spirit-Ventura, by Spectrum) scored a front-running 2-lengths victory in the €80,000 (A$110,000) Gr3 Prix Imprudence (1400m) for 3YO fillies at Maisons-Laffitte. Moonlight Cloud (ridden by Davy Bonila for trainer Freddy Head) defeated fellow UK-bred Helleborine (Observatory-New Orchid, by Quest For Fame) & Irish-bred Miss Fifty (Whipper-Annatto, by Mister Baileys). Moonlight Cloud took her record to 3 wins & a placing from 4 starts.
