Yarraman Park Celebration

Tara Madgwick - Monday August 28

The stallions are all fully booked at Yarraman Park, but there was still a massive crowd at the Mitchell family owned and run farm last Friday afternoon with breeders from far and wide looking to celebrate the success of reigning champion sire I Am Invincible.

I Am Invincible is Australia's best sire, click for more info.

I Am Invincible has won the past two Australian Champion Sire titles and is already on track for a third having taken the early lead on the General Sires list by earnings winners and stakes-winners just one month into the new season.



Hellbent, click for more info.

I Am Invincible's Group I winning son Hellbent has had a fee increase this year to $38,500 and will cover his best ever book of mares. He's been quickly into stridie in the new season and is already sitting right behind his arch rival Russian Revolution, who stands at a fee of $88,000.



Brave Smash (Jpn, click for more info.

Japanese bred Brave Smash (Jpn) is a new addition and is also book fully at a fee of $33,000 and will have a key runner this Saturday with Kimochi set to run in the Group II ATC Darley Furious Stakes following her terrific first up third in the Group II ATC Silver Shadow.

Kimochi is from a daughter of I Am Invincible, so her success may be a good pointer to the future!!
