Everest Possible for I Am Invincible Colt Home Affairs

Tara Madgwick - Saturday September 25

Exciting I Am Invincible colt Home Affairs made a powerful visual statement when he walked into the mounting yard at Rosehill on Saturday and he backed it up on the track when blazing to a dominant victory in the Listed ATC Heritage Stakes (1100m).

Given a solid grounding for his return with three previous barrier trials, all of which he won easily, the Chris Waller trained Home Affairs was fit and full of confidence for this assignment.

He crossed smartly from an outside draw to lead under Nash Rawiller and was never challenged, powering right through the line to win by nearly two lengths in a slick 1:02.67.
 



Waller won the 2019 Everest with then-three-year-old colt Yes Yes Yes, who now stands on the Coolmore roster, and believes the race is a good fit for the right type of three year-old sprinter.

“The Everest will be discussed for sure, Home Affairs is obviously a very talented three-year-old,’’ Waller said.

“I know he has only had five starts but in terms of experience he has had those trials and a Golden Slipper preparation which can be demanding.

“He’s a big, strong colt and he could go to The Everest if that is what the owners decide – Coolmore are a great group to train for, they don’t put any pressure on me, they put the horse first.’’

Home Affairs was bred and sold by Torryburn Stud fetching $875,000 at Inglis Easter.
An $875,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Tom Magnier from the Torryburn Stud draft, Home Affairs runs for a big syndicate headed by Coolmore and various partners and has the overall record of two wins and two placings from five starts with some $341,100 in prizemoney.

A half-brother to Group I placed Aysar, Home Affairs was bred by Torryburn Stud and is the second winner from Miss Interiors, a winning half-sister by Flying Spur to dual Group I winner and sire Russian Revolution and Group III winner Turbo Miss.

Torryburn Stud sold the two year-old Capitalist colt from Miss Interiors for $1,050,000 at Inglis Easter to James Harron Bloodstock and he has been named Wilbury.

Miss Interiors has a yearling colt by Dundeel and was covered by him again last spring.

Yarraman Park's champion sire I Am Invincible is the sire of Home Affairs.
