Invincible Spirit Adds UK Gr2

Monday, 24th August 2015

At York in the UK, former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a Group success when 2YO colt Ajaya (Invincible Spirit-Nessina, by Hennessy) let down with an impressive burst of speed to score by 1.25-lengths for trainer William Haggas in the Gr2 Gimcrack Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs, over fellow colts Ribchester (Iffraaj-Mujarah, by Marju) & Raucous (Dream Ahead-Shyrl, by Acclamation). This was the first stakes victory for Ajaya who took his record to 2 wins and 2 placings (including the Gr2 Prix Robert Papin) from 5 starts for £153,270 earnings. Haggas said Ajaya would be aimed at the Gr1 Middle Park Stakes (6 furlongs) at Newmarket on 26 September. "I think we will go for the Middle Park now, there is nothing to be gained by going lower," he said.
