Symbolic Spirit (GB)

2017 bay filly by Westerner (GB) ex Carole’s Spirit (GB) (Hernando (Fr))

This is a smart looking filly by Westerner, one of the most consistent and talented horses of his generation, who won 5 Group 1’s including the Ascot Gold Cup, and was runner-up to the world champion racehorse Hurricane Run in the Arc. Since joining the National Hunt stallion ranks, Westerner has produced Grade 1 bumper, hurdle and chase winners including Cole Harden, Western Warhorse, and most recently the Champion Bumper winner Ferny Hollow, an outstanding prospect for this season. The dam, Carole’s Spirit, was a dual Listed winner and Grade 2 placed and is a half-sister to the top class pair of Carole’s Legacy and Mad Max. Our filly has the looks to go with her classy page, and we are very excited to have her on the team!

Trainer

Amy Murphy is one of the most promising young trainers to take out a license in recent years. The top-class Kalashnikov perfectly advertised Amy’s skill when winning the Betfair Hurdle in just her second year as a trainer, and also provided a first Grade 1 for Amy, her father Paul who owns the horse, and jockey Jack Quinlan, in 2019. Amy gained experience with Tom Dascombe, Gai Waterhouse, and as Assistant to Luca Cumani before taking out her license in 2016, and is a trainer look out for both over jumps and on the flat.
