12/8/2019 Heirborn showcases sire Charm Spirit

The impressive run of form of progeny from the first-crop of Windsor Park shuttler Charm Spirit (Invincible Spirit) continued when Heirborn won the VRC Member Helen Saffin Handicap (1400m) at Flemington. The Anthony Freedman-trained three-year-old is now unbeaten in his two starts and is expected to progress further with time and a step-up in distance, whether that be this preparation or in the autumn for the gelding who holds a nomination for the Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m). “He is a very genuine horse and we have liked him from day one,” assistant Sam Freedman said. “He has just got the best attitude and he is so relaxed and hopefully he can stretch out over a bit further. He is just a big frame. He has really got to fill into himself and the way he raced there he looks like he is looking for the mile now, but we will get him home and Anthony will map a plan from there.”
