21st 2YO Winner for I Am Invincible

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday June 26
Yarraman Park's super sire I Am Invincible sired his 21st Australian two year-old winner of the season when dashing grey filly Lucicello charged home to score a dominant win at Randwick on Wednesday.

Lucicello as a yearlingThe Chris Waller trained filly had one unplaced start last year and over raced in the lead when she returned at Randwick earlier this month before fading to finish third.

Ridden quietly this time around by Robbie Dolan, she made light of the heavy ground to power away from runner-up Roman Wolf to win the 1150 metre juvenile event by more than two lengths.

"She's a filly we've always held in high regard, although she has her share of quirks," said Waller stable representative Charlie Duckworth.

"She was much better today, that's obviously the way to ride her and it should be onwards and upwards for her."

A $190,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Anton Koolman Bloodstock from the Middlebrook Valley Lodge draft, Lucicello races for a syndicate that includes Debbie Kepitis in whose colours she runs and Arthur and Charlotte Inglis among others.

A respected bloodstock agent with years of experience, Koolman has had plenty of recent success with his Inglis Easter purchases which include Group I stars such as The Autumn Sun, Egg Tart, Youngstar and this season's promising two year-old Funstar.

Lucicello is the first winner from stakes-placed Lucciola (IRE), a three-quarter sister-by Verglas in-blood to Group I winner and sire Glass Harmonium from the family of champion stayer and multiple Group I winner Conduit.

With a pedigree featuring such a mix of speed and stamina, Lucicello appeals as a filly follow next season as her three year-old career unfolds.
