Traisha, 4 year old daughter of Invincible Spirit landed the Listed Beckford Stakes at Bath yesterday for Trainer Joseph O’ Brien and Owners Al Wasmiyah Stud under Jockey David Egan.
Bred by B V Sangster, she was purchased at Tattersalls Book 1 by Charlie Gordon-Watson for 400,000gns. Second to Passion in the Gr.3 Stannera Stakes at Naas in August, with previous Stakes form it was great to see the daughter of Invincible Spirit get her well earned Black Type success.
Racing Post analysis; The feature race was a good quality Listed staying contest for fillies and mares. The sole Irish-trained raider took the inner line throughout and won readily off an even gallop. TRAISHA appeared likely to appreciate the drop back to 1m6f. The 4yo may prove capable of winning in Group company over this distance.
