A brilliant juvenile stakes-winner at Doomben last December, three year-old I Am Invincible colt SUNDANCEmade a sizzling return to the track at Doomben on Wednesday.
A $140,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Newhaven Park draft for Blue Sky Bloodstock and his trainer Toby Edmonds, Sundance failed to fire in two starts in May, but showed he was right back to his best with this performance.
He led throughout and kept right on running to win the 1050 metre scamper by three lengths, his second win from six starts with prizemoney topping $90,000.
Sundance has some interesting line breeding as he is the second winner for Pacific Dreams, a half-sister by Desert Prince (IRE) to the dam of his sire I Am Invincible.
He has a 3 x 2 double cross of Countess Pedrille, the full sister to Group II winner Mamzelle Pedrille and also a close 3 x 3 double cross of champion sire Green Desert.
Being Magic Millions eligible, connections will no doubt be looking forward to the lucrative Brisbane summer racing and the $10 million Magic Millions race day in January.
Sundance was the second leg of a Brisbane double for Blue Sky Bloodstock purchased yearlings by I Am Invincible, with Tony Gollan's three-year-old filly LIPSTICK LOVER, a graduate of Yarraman Park Stud's Magic Millions draft breaking her maiden impressively in the opening race of the day - click here to read all about the win.
