January 18, 2017Zac Spirit – 2016 Singapore Champion Sprinter
The Champion Sprinter of Singapore in 2014, now retired speedster Zac Spirit was awarded the title for the second time at a glittering awards ceremony in Singapore last night.
The Cliff Brown trained son of Flying Spur won the Singapore Lion City Cup Sng Gr 1 in April last year for the second time before a recurrence of his previous injuries brought about his retirement.
A $140,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Newhaven draft, Zac Spirit is from well related Kidman and was snapped up by his trainer Cliff Brown, who also trained his stakes-winning three-quarter brother Zac Influence.
Zac Spirit has seldom missed the mark winning 11 races and placings nine times from 22 starts.
A stakes-placed Quest for Fame (GB) mare from the family of outstanding racehorse and sire Zeditave, Kidman has a lovely yearling filly by Redoute’s Choice that was sold last week by Newhaven Park at Magic Millions for $400,000 to Blue Sky Bloodstock.
Zac Spirit is enjoying his retirement back in the paddocks of Newhaven Park where he was foaled and raised. His dam Kidman produced a colt by Exceed and Excel last year and is now in foal to Golden Slipper winner Vancouver.
