I Am Invincible topped a record-breaking Book 2 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale on Sunday.
Sutton’s Mane Lodge offered his colt from Yields of Gold (High Yield) that made $260,000 to Ontrack Thoroughbreds and Toby Edmonds.
Ontrack manager Grant Morgan was delighted to snare the colt and hoped he could continue the great run connections have had with the progeny of Yarraman Park’s I Am Invincible. “He’s a three quarter brother to I Am Snippety who unfortunately broke down when going to win a Group Two,” Morgan said. “It’s the first time Yields of Gold has been to I Am Invincible.
“I Am Invincible is a very dominant stallion who upgrades his mares. We’ve had good experience with the stallion with Brazen Beau and this colt’s pedigree is not dissimilar to his at the same stage.”
Over $10 million was given for 160 lots sold at a record average price of $63,761. “The depth and diversity of the market continued through to Book 2,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. “There was a healthy gain in average while the turnover was down on the back of less numbers.”
