Invincible Spirit | Bronwen Healy

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Thursday's Observations features a half-sister to a seven-figure Arqana yearling.

Pascal Bary trainee LADY INVINCIBLE (FR) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) is the second of three foals out of a half-sister to MG1SW sire Shamardal (Giant's Causeway). The May-foaled bay is a €300,000 Arqana August graduate, whose year-younger half-brother by Siyouni (Fr) was the highest-priced colt when knocked down for €2.2 million at this month's renewal of that sale. Eight-strong opposition includes Al Shaqab Racing's homebred Silham (Ire) (Wootton Bassett {GB}), who is kin to two stakes performers out of GI Madison S. heroine Shotgun Gulch (Gulch), representing the Jean-Claude Rouget stable; and His Highness The Aga Khan's Candala (Fr) (Frankel {GB}), who is a Francis-Henri Graffard-trained daughter of MGSW G1 Prix Vermeille second Candarliya (Fr) (Dalakhani {Ire}).
