At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning stallion I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit-Cannarelle, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 4YO bay mare Invincible Gem (I Am Invincible-Diamond Day, by Marwina) resumed with a brilliant win in the $200,000 Gr2 Missile Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating stable-mate and three-time Gr1 winner Le Romain & The Monstar. Invincible Gem improved her record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 Spring Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 Randwick Guineas) from 10 starts for $544,850 in earnings. Trainer Kris Lees said Invincible Gem was now likely to head to the Gr3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at Rosehill Gardens on 9 September. "She's come back in super order. She's a high quality mare," Lees told Sky Racing. "You never know how these fillies will come back in the early spring, but she's come back in terrific order." Lees added: "She will probably go to the Sheraco but her main aim is the Golden Pendant [Gr2 over 1400m at Rosehill] and then hopefully we can get to Melbourne for the Myer [Gr1 Myer Classic over 1600m]."
