A Profile on Barbaric

Breednet - Monday May 16

There are two sons of I Am Invincible standing their first season in 2022, both Group winning two-year-olds, both high priced yearlings – one is Home Affairs standing at $110,000, the other Barbaric standing at $8,800 so let’s take a close look at Barbaric.


First coming to attention as a $900,000 yearling at the Magic Millions Gold Coast, Barbaric had just a five start career where he scored a none too surprising easy win in maiden grade at his second start before winning the Gr.3 Black Opal Stakes next start.

He retires to Queensland’s Lyndhurst Stud, a farm which in recent years has steered Better Than Ready to the top of Queensland’s stallion ranks so they know how to launch a stallion into the Queensland market.

Pedigree-wise he’s by a stallion that has been at the top of the sires tables and sales prices for several years now and there is obviously an appetite for his sons going to stud.


His dam Mimi Lebrock was one of the best of her generation, winning the Magic Millions 2YO Classic as well as three other stakes races and was Group One placed twice.

So good type, nice pedigree, stakes winning juvenile at a proven farm see the right boxes ticked and at a fee of $8,800 it’s fair to assume he’s going to get good numbers, giving him a real shot at success.

What sort of mares might suit?

There are seven sons of Invincible Spirit which have sired stakes winners in Australasia but it’s essentially all about I Am Invincible - and there is a lot of Danehill!

The below chart shows the stakes winners for sons of Invincible Spirit ranked by their maternal grandsire.

The data is Australasian focused however we’ve included the Group One winners for Kingman in the Northern Hemisphere as he is currently carrying the flag for the Invincible Spirit line in that part of the world.

So if you’ve got a Danehill line mare, Barbaric is going to make plenty of appeal, although interestingly three of I Am Invincible’s Group One winners go back to Sadler’s Wells and Zabeel on the female side.
