Purchased by Blue Sky Bloodstock and Gold Coast-based trainer Toby Edmonds at this year’s Magic Millions Yearling Sale, two-year-old colt SUNDANCE (I Am Invincible x Pacific Dreams) makes his debut on Saturday, November 28 at Doomben.
Set to contest the Race 1: Sky Racing QTIS Two-year-old Handicap over 1050m, the colt will be ridden by Jeff Lloyd and has drawn barrier 12, but will come in a few after scratching’s.
Second a few weeks back in a Gold Coast barrier trial behind Starante, who has since come out and produced a length and a quarter debut victory at the Gold Coast, the form reads well for our talented colt and all reports indicate he should perform well.
Sourced from the draft of Newhaven Park, Sundance (pictured above as a yearling) is out of the Desert Prince mare Pacific Dreams, who is herself a half-sister to Cannarelle, the dam of I Am Invincible himself!
Also in the pedigree are numerous stakes winners including O’Lonhro, Mamzelle Pedrille, Diamond Drille as well as the exciting Australian-bred, South African Group 2-winning, Group 1 placed Tamaanee.
If Sundance can come through the run, he is likely to head towards the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast in January.
Having purchased I Am Invincible as a yearling and also training him in his early days, Toby Edmonds can also be credited with supplying the stallion with one of his first stakes winners when Bassillique won the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes on debut.
