More 'black type' for Gypsy Spirit

GYPSY Spirit was only a head away from giving us a first Stakes success in the Bosra Sham Stakes at Newmarket on Friday afternoon.

The daughter of Gregorian put up another gutsy display to finish third in a photo behind Angelic Light and Chynna. 

Ridden by Luke Morris, she raced freely in the early stages and came under pressure quite early. She didn't look entirely at ease on the soft conditions in the 'Dip' but once she hit the rising ground she ran on strongly going down by just a head and a nose.

Tom said: "We bought Gypsy Spirit for just 6,000gns at Tattersalls a year ago and she has given her owners a wonderful time this year. She has been a real flagbearer for us and hasn't run a bad race all season.

"She won her novice back in April and has improved and improved since. She'll have a holiday now and can hopefully be competitive in fillies' Stakes races next season."
