We'd like to think we bring here, the perfect racehorse ownership opportunity. Purchased at the Arqana Breeze Up Sale in France, this attractive, tough, very correct and sound filly who breezed exceptionally well, with a great stride, head carriage and tenacity, also has a pedigree to die for.
Her pedigree is exceptional; by a three time Group 1 winning son of Invincible Spirit (out of a Montjeu mare) in CHARM SPIRIT and she is out of a mare who has been afforded very few real opportunities to produce a good horse, yet she has already produced two black type performers (Listed and Group race performers) on her CV, including the 111 rated (Timeform 112) Morache Music who was placed at Group 3 level. The mare is also closely related to High Standing who finished 3rd in the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest.
Charm Spirit (Timeform 127) is far and away the most classically bred stallion our filly's mare has visited, so it was little surprise that at a recent breeze up sale, Ger Kennedy of Sherborne Lodge, pinpointed her as a filly that was upcoming for sale at the Arqana Breeze Up sale and a filly that we should particularly look out for. Charm Spirit was a high class 2yo himself but progressed at 3 to win the French 2000 Guineas (Gp1), the Prix Jean Prat (Gp1) and The QEII (Gp1) at Ascot.

When we bought her, Charm Spirit had yet to sire a winner; he is now second in the 1st crop sires table. He looks a bit of a stallion find, by Tweenhills and you could make a case for him being a stallion to really get excited about. There's a solid case to make too, to suggest that he could be the best of the stallions the mare has been to, however time will tell.
Our filly, clearly bred in the purple, comes highly recommended as, and is bred to be, a very talented filly indeed. She is Ger's "star filly of the breeze up season," no less and one who is ready to 'rock and roll', as they say. She hails from the family of the USA Stakes performer and Group performer Promptly and the Italian Group 3 horse Reinaldo. As we've covered, Charm Spirit is the first regally bred stallion the mare of our filly has visited, so there's every reason to believe she could become her mare's very best progeny, to date. Charm Spirit's €20,000 nomination would considerably exceed the cover prices of this mare's previous matings.
Our filly has a fantastic physique, with a good size, deep withers and a bit of length about her too; she's not just a one trick 2yo pony who will run out of gas, she's very much one for both her 2yo and 3yo careers too. Her breeze demonstrated outstanding attributes and her stretch on the stride was exemplary. She's got a great page, her sire is performing amazingly well already, she's got plenty of ability and she's very much big enough to make a 3 year old too.
