MM Gold Coast Day-5: $260K For I Am Invincible Colt
A colt by leading sire I Am Invincible topped a record breaking day five of selling at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale yesterday. Consigned by Sutton's Mane Lodge as Lot 891, the colt from Yields of Gold (High Yield) sold to Ontrack Thoroughbreds and Magic Millions 2YO Classic winning trainer Toby Edmonds for a session high price of $260,000. Ontrack Thoroughbreds' Grant Morgan said he was delighted to snare the colt and hoped he could continue the great run connections have had with the progeny of Yarraman Park's I Am Invincible. "The colt is a three quarter brother to I Am Snippety who unfortunately broke down when going to win a Group Two," Morgan explained. "This is the first time the mare (Yields of Gold) has been to I Am Invincible and he is a stallion who is now commanding better prices." He added: "I Am Invincible is a very dominant stallion who upgrades his mares. We've had good experience with the stallion with Brazen Beau and this colt's pedigree is not dissimilar to his at the same stage." During the day over $10 million was paid for 160 lots at a record average price of $63,761. "The depth and diversity of the market continued through to Book Two," Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. "The first five days of the Gold Coast Yearling Sale have been a tremendous success for vendors, buyers and Magic Millions alike." Cox added: "Everyone played their part in what was a glorious carnival for Magic Millions and the Australian bloodstock industry."
