Former European Champion 1st Season Sire & Chatswood Stud shuttler Invincible Spirit (Green Desert-Rafha, by Kris) added a black-type success when daughter Hooray (Invincible Spirit-Hypnotize, by Machiavellian) scored a 1.25-lengths victory against the males in the £30,000 (A$46,000) Listed Surrey Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YOs at Epsom.
