The $1 million Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes goes East for another year with the win of Voodoo Lad, a son of Yarraman Park’s (NSW) champion sire I Am Invincible, giving this stallion his seventh Group 1 winner.
What a bargain buy Voodoo Lad has been for connections, having been sold at the Inglis Scone yearling sale for just $36,000. His record now stands at 33 starts for 13 wins, 9 seconds, 2 thirds and $1,966,110 in prize money.
Voodoo Lad’s sire, I Am Invincible is on fire with 43 winners in the last 30 days, the most of any stallion in the Country.
I Am Invincible took the first season sire championship in 2013-14, and second on the Australian sires’ list in 2017-18. He has had 469 progeny to race for 357 winners (76.0%), with earnings of over $47 million and 39 stakes winners and 27 stakes placegetters.
I Am Invincible stood for $192,500 this season.
Talking about bargain buys, The Celt by the former Touchstone Farm stallion Planet Five has been an astute purchase for connections who snapped him up for $4,500.
The Celt’s record stands at 32 starts for 7 wins, 7 seconds, 1 third and $409,350 in prize money.
Three local stallions produced winners – Planet Five (Touchstone Farm), Blackfriars (Scenic Lodge) and Frost Giant (Yarradale Stud).
