Stunning Spirit, 6 year old son of Invincible Spirit recorded his third stakes win, first in Group company when landing the Gr.3 Barriere Prix Quincey at Deauville yesterday for Trainer Frederick Rossi, Owners Le Haras De La Gousserie and Jockey Mickael Barzalona. Breeder George Strawbridge.
Bred by George Strawbridge, Stunning Spirit is out of a Dynaformer full-sister to the dual Gr.1 winner Rainbow View, and half-sister to four other Group/Graded winners, namely Utley (Smart Strike), Winter View (Thunder Gulch), Just As Well (A P Indy and Wissahickon (Tapit).
He was sold at the Arqana Arc sale for €65,000 to agent Paul Nataf.
Racing Post analysis: Stunning Spirit made virtually all, taken right leaving stalls to race on far rail, led group of three in indian file, driven for home over 2f out, clear leader overall inside final 1 1/2f, stayed on well, unchallenged.
We look forward to seeing where this progressive son of Invincible Spirit appears next.
