Castlebar, three year old son of Invincible Spirit ex INS homebred Aimhirgin Lass (Pivotal) is now a dual winner for Trainer Charlie Appleby and Owners Godolphin after landing the Free Handicap at Wolverhampton yesterday.
Castlebar is the first produce of Aimhirgin Lass and sold at Goffs Orby sale for €460,000. His dam is a 8.4f/1m3f winner (RPR 84), sister to 6f 2yo Listed winner Seeharn, half-sister to 7f/7.4f Group 3 winner Yellow Rosebud out of unraced half-sister to 6f Group 1 winner Malhub.
Racing Post analysis; CASTLEBAR did well to win this seeing as the race wasn’t run to suit. Cheekpieces and Tapeta both suit well on recent evidence, and he remains one to keep on side, especially with more in his favour again.
