Invincible Spirit Adds UK Black-Type
Former European Champion 1st Season Sire & shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a UK black-type success when his colt Swiss Spirit (Invincible Spirit-Swiss Lake, by Indian Ridge) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the £33,000 (A$53,000) Listed Carnarvon Stakes (6 furlongs) for 3YOs at Newbury. Swiss Spirit (ridden by Mickael Barzalona for trainer David Elsworth) scored by a neck from Irish-bred fellow colt Lethal Force (Dark Angel-Land Army, by Desert Style) with a further neck to another Irish-bred colt Samminder (Red Ransom-Gimasha, by Cadeaux Genereux). Swiss Spirit took his record to 2 wins & 3 placings (including 2011's UK Listed Rockingham Stakes over 6 furlongs at York) from 6 starts for £69,509 (A$111,000) earnings.
