Charm Spirit continues to produce stakes winners
Windsor Park Stud’s shuttle stallion Charm Spirit was credited with this seventh stakes winner over the weekend when the Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Fantastic Spirit was successful in the Listed Derby Du Midi (1900m) in France.
The three-year-old colt stayed on strongly in the final stages to beat Again Music by a short-neck with another length back to Frohsim in third.
The son of Charm Spirit was purchased as a foal at the Arqana December Sale by Artemis Bloodstock Investments for €25,000, before being bought by his trainer for €50,000 at the Arqana May Breeze-Up Sale.
Charm Spirit is represented by four stakes winners in the southern hemisphere, including Group Two winners Aretha and Fascino, and he will return to Windsor Park in 2020 where his fee is on a price on application basis.
