All sold.

This filly is bred to run as a 2-year-old!!!  Her sire Invader, a son of Snitzel, was the Champion 2yo Colt in Australia in 2016-17.  The filly’s dam, herself a 2-year-old winner, has already produced two individual winners.

Richard and Chantelle’s comments:

This filly is a very forward, speedy type who has good natural muscle, giving us every indication that she will be running as a 2yo.  Being a first season sire, Invader’s progeny really caught our eye at the Gold Coast sale.  We thought for $75K this filly was a bargain.  Two of Invader’s yearlings out of the 13 offered for sale sold for half a million dollars.
