Edmonds Racing to train the Segenhoe Stud purchased I Am Invincible colts
Jan 18, 2014
Purchased from this year’s Magic Millions Yearling Sale by Kevin Maloney’s Segenhoe Stud, Lots 682 and 837, both colts by I Am Invincible, are set to be trained by the Toby Edmonds Stable!
Currently all the rage, due to his outstanding success on the track with his first crop of runners, Toby Edmonds knows all too well about the quality that I Am Invincible possessed as a racehorse and is now passing onto his progeny.
Trained earlier in his career by Toby Edmonds Racing, I Am Invincible won by five lengths on his debut as a two-year-old, before finishing third in the Group Three Kindergarten Stakes at his second start behind eventual Group One Golden Slipper winner Forensics.
An exciting speedster, I Am Invincible won five times from 13 starts highlighted by victory in the Listed Sir Monash Stakes as well as a second place behind Takeover Target in the Group One Goodwood Handicap in Adelaide.
Consigned by Yarraman Park Stud, Lot 682 (pictured below) is out of the Langfuhr mare Sacred Hill, making this colt a full-brother to our recent stakes winner Bassillique (click here to read about his win) – so the stable knows quite a bit about this family!!
Sacred Hill is a half-sister to the Listed winner Pottinger as well as Suggestive, the dam four stakes winners; Group One winner Sky Cuddle, Group Two winner Highly Recommended, Group Three winner Sky Love and the recent Listed winner Undeniably.
The second of the yearlings, Lot 837 (pictured below), also consigned by Yarraman Park Stud is the third foal of the winning Catbird mare Grand Bird, a sister to the stakes placed Bouzy, a half-sister to Grand Princess, who is in turn the dam of stakes winners Her Royal Highness and Captain’s Command (dam of stakes winning two-year-old Sweet Cheeks).
Mares by Catbird have produced six stakes performers to date from only a limited amount of runners which is headed by Group One Queensland Derby winner Hawkspur.
Toby Edmonds Racing would like to thank Kevin Maloney, his family and Segenhoe Stud for giving the stable the opportunity to train these two impressive colts and we can’t wait to see the famous red, yellow seams and cap silks surge across the finishing line in first place!
