English SW Heads South To Visit Charm Spirit
Stakes-performed English racemare Raskova, closely related to champion racehorses Shamardal and Street Cry, is to travel to the southern hemisphere to be mated with triple Gr1-winning miler Charm Spirit. Owned and raced by New Zealand Breeder of the Year Kevin Hickman, Raskova is also related to one of this year's leading European 3YOs in Territories who, like Charm Spirit, is a son of champion sire Invincible Spirit. The duo are back-to-back winners of Chantilly's Gr1 Prix Jean Prat. Raskova is one of five mares Hickman will be sending to Charm Spirit, Invincible Spirit's highest earning son, who recently arrived at Windsor Park Stud to stand his first southern hemisphere season.
