The stocks of hot young first season sire Charm Spirit (Invincible Spirit) continued on an upward trajectory when Epistrophy became her sires 19th individual winner for the season at Chantilly in Paris yesterday.
Epistrophy scored a comfortable victory in the 1400m event, at the home of the French Derby, her success coming hard on the heels of her sires impressive Newmarket winner Kick On.
A triple Gr.1-winning miler, Charm Spirit now lies in third position on the European First Season Sires list and has sired 2YO winners from 1000m to 1600m including recent English Group winner Yourtimeisnow.
Charm Spirit shuttles to Windsor Park Stud, Cambridge where the highest earning son of Invincible Spirit has begun his fourth southern hemisphere breeding season.
