Charm Spirit filly heading to Perth

Perth bloodstock agent John Chalmers hopes a filly from the first crop of Windsor Park Stud shuttler Charm Spirit (Invincible Spirit) with a double cross of Sadler’s Wells (Northern Dancer) can develop into an Oaks filly.

Chalmers went to $100,000 for Lot 807, a Curraghmore consigned daughter of European Group One winner Charm Spirit out of the placed mare Egeria (Daylami) who has had four foals to race for three winners including Melbourne metropolitan winner Freshwater Storm (One Cool Cat).

Egeria herself is a half-sister to European Listed winner Inglenook (Cadeaux Genereux) while the Charm Spirit filly is also from the same  family as successful stallion Pentire (Be My Guest) and Group Three winning stayer Spring (Sadler’s Wells).

Chalmers said the filly had been purchased for Perth-based owner Bob Peters.

“She's an outstanding filly with plenty of size and length about her,” Chalmers told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“She has some beautiful bloodlines and Charm Spirit has been received well here this week. He was never tried beyond a mile but he was bred to go further and I reckon this filly, with the double up of Sadler's Wells in her pedigree, could be a nice prospect for an Oaks.”

Gordon Cunningham of Curraghmore told ANZ Bloodstock News the filly’s stout female pedigree would hold her in good stead for middle-distance races as a three-year-old and beyond.

“She is a sound, athletic filly with plenty of scope, She looks like an obvious middle-distance racer consistent with her family background being from the family of Pentire and Shirley Heights,” Cunningham said.

“It's nice to know that John Chalmers agrees with me.”

Curraghmore sold six yearlings for an aggregate of $339,000 at an average of NZ$56,500 yesterday. -ANZ Bloodstock News
