Sundance All Class in Phelan Ready Stakes Victory

Dec 14, 2015

The Listed BRC Phelan Ready Stakes at Doomben on Saturday was won in spectacular fashion by exciting I Am Invincible colt Sundance, a $140,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Newhaven Park draft for Blue Sky Bloodstock and his trainer Toby Edmonds.

Narrowly beaten on debut at Doomben last month, Sundance made amends when jumping straight to the front from gate one for Jeff Lloyd.

He controlled the race and bolted clear to win the 1050 metre scamper by nearly five lengths earning his spot in the $2million Magic Millions 2YO Classic in January.

"He might have a trial or a jump-out but he is in the Millions field now so I won’t do too much,” said Edmonds, who trained his sire I Am Invincible in the early part of his career.

Sundance has some interesting line breeding as he is the second winner for Pacific Dreams, a half-sister by Desert Prince (IRE) to the dam of his sire I Am Invincible.

He has a 3 x 2 double cross of Countess Pedrille, the full sister to Group II winner Mamzelle Pedrille and also a close 3 x 3 double cross of champion sire Green Desert.

Pacific Dreams was sold in 2014 for $20,000 and produced a colt by I Am Invincible for her new owners Henry Field and James Harron Bloodstock.

That colt, the full brother to Sundance, has been entered for the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.

Sundance is the tenth stakes-winner for Yarraman Park’s star sire I Am Invincible, who also had an impressive debut two year-old winner at Kembla on Saturday in Cudabeen, as well as the Edmonds Stable producing Always Sacred,a full-brother to Bassillique, winning his second race frm four starts.
