5th-SAX, $58,086, Msw, 3yo, f, 1mT, 1:35, fm.
SHE SPIRIT DI SU (IRE) (f, 3, Invincible Spirit {Ire}–She Bat {GB} {GSW-Ity}, by Batshoof {GB}), previously campaigned overseas by owners Mrs K Hassett and Ms J Grimes and trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam, gave the boys all they could handle when second-best behind subsequent GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf third-place finisher Farraaj (Dubai Destination) in a Warwick maiden Aug. 29, then was given the rest of the term off. Subsequently purchased privately by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, the dark bay was backed as a 2-1 chance to get it right in her U.S. bow here. Settled toward the back in ninth for most of the way, She Spirit di Su came alive on the far outside on the turn for home and came flying down the center of the course to win in style by 1 1/2 lengths. Lovestealer (Artie Schiller) was second. She Spirit Di Su is 3/4 to She Basic (Ire) (Desert Prince {Ire}), GSP-Ity, $119,016; and a half-sister to She Breeze (GB) (Selkirk), SW & GSP-Ity, $186,983; She Is Great (Ire) (Dalakhani {Ire}), SW-Ity, $129,614. Sales history: 80,000gns RNA 2yo ’11 TATAPR. Lifetime Record: 3-1-1-1, $36,037. Click for the chart or a video replay.
