A Stakes Winning Weekend
Havana Gold sired his fifth individual Stakes winner on Sunday, while Charm Spirit was also on the mark twice over the weekend.
Three-year-old gelding Havana View has now won four of his five starts, beating Domagnano by a length and a quarter in the Premio Merano over a mile and a quarter.
Havana View was bought by his trainer Alduino Botti for just €13,500 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Part II Yearling Sale. He was bred by The National Stud and is out of North Light mare Morning View, a half-sister to St Leger winner and sire Lucarno.
Havana Gold (pictured) had another international winner over the weekend with Blue Tempera winning the Tattersalls Sprint Trophy in Greece, as well as one at home in Britain, the Heather Main-trained Island Sound in a handicap at Newcastle.
Charm Spirit also continued his winning spell with two more winners over the weekend, taking his tally to seven individual winners.
Aquarius has an eye-catching pedigree as a Charm Spirit half-sister to smart three-year-old Tabdeed (by Havana Gold) and she made a winning debut at Newmarket on Saturday. She was a first ever two-year-old debut winner for her trainer Mick Appleby and could be smart.
Aquarius is certainly bred to stay further than six furlongs as she's out of Peintre Celebre mare Puzzled - though Tabdeed does look a sprinter for the time being. Aquarius was bred by Michael Downey & Roalso Ltd.
Charm Spirit's other winner was Early Time who improved plenty upon her debut to score at Dax in France on Sunday. She runs in the colours of the Haras d'Etreham and was bred in partnership with Ecurie des Charmes. Early Time is out of Pivotal mare Every Time.
Congratulations to all connections.
