Kooringal gets into the Spirit of the new season

Kooringal Stud could not have asked for a better start to the new season with the arrival of its first foal on August 1.

Four-time winner Dantain’s Spirit (by I am Invincible) became the proud mum of a bay filly by  dual Group 1 winner Prized Icon.

“She was a lovely filly born on the afternoon of August first ... it was a great way to kick off the season,” Kooringal’s Angus Lamont said.

“We are expecting around 40 foals by a range of sires by the end of August so it will be a busy time.”

Prized Icon’s oldest progeny turned yearlings the same day as Dantain’s Spirit produced her fourth foal.
