Invincible Spirit enjoyed an annus mirabilus on the track in 2014 with his two three year old sons Kingman and Charm Spirit winning 7 Group 1 races between them. These two however weren’t the only progeny of Invincible Spiriti enjoying success in 2014.
In Great Britain, Invincible Spirit broke the record for individual winners in a season siring 88 winners. The previous record of 84 was set by Acclamation in 2013. Not only did Invincible Spirit set the record for winning individuals he also broke the record for races won totalling 137 which broke the record of 135 wins achieved by Cape Cross in 2009.
Breaking the British records helped Invincible Spirit on his way to becoming the 2014 European Champion Sire by number of winners fending off Galileo with 141 to his 135 of individual winners. It was a procession with regard to races won with progeny of Invincible Spirit winning 226 races in 2014 as compared to Galileo’s 193.
Another stellar year from the Irish National Stud stalwart and long may it continue into 2015 and beyond!
