I Am Invincible on a Roll

I Am Invincible was right on the ball on Saturday week siring Crack The Code, the first winner at Caulfield, and it just got better as the meeting progressed.

When I Am Immortal won the Blue Diamond Preview for colts and a geldings, things were then really hotting up and the show was far from over.

The Blue Diamond Preview for fillies saw the Sydney trained filly, Catch Me, defeat Jedastar by a slender margin, both by I Am Invincible.

To complete the day I Am A Cool Kid won the second race at Randwick, the Highway Handicap.

Record Sale Entries

When entries closed for the 2019 Karaka Yearling sales, 103 entries were received and catalogued on behalf of Waikato Stud Ltd. at Matamata.

One hundred and three lots is a great record, and how well the stud is organized to handle that number of horses.

From 1930 to 1940 Percy Miller’s Kia-Ora Stud, at Scone, regularly sold an average of 90 yearlings, in 1941 he sold a record 105 lots at the Sydney Easter Sales.

During the war years petrol was heavily rationed, there was no petrol for transporting horses, they were walked to the nearest railhead, possibly Scone, and travelled by train.

On arrival at Central Railway Station they had to be walked individually to the sales complex at Randwick.

Some great sires have stood at Kia Oro including Magpie, Midstream and Delville Wood, and numerous others, Percy Miller hardly stood a colonial sire, however, he made an exception, he could not resist Chatham, he was a great miler.

Long Leaf has the Pedigree

Long leaf gave a dashing display in winning the Karaka Millions; he will be wrapped in cotton wool from here in, as he is a very expensive colt for racing and breeding purposes.

He was purchased for $750,000 as a yearling out of the Curraghmore’s draft by BBA Ireland, and looks certain to stand at Coolmore in due course.

The win was a welcome return for James McDonald, who had not ridden at Ellerslie for three years, he noticed a lot of changes to New Zealand’s leading racecourse.

McDonald had Long Leaf well positioned when he drew along side of Media Sensation at the 800 metres, and soon after had to fend off a desperate challenge from The Real Beel half way up the straight.

Long Leaf is by Fastneck Rock from Frustrating, he has a sensational dam line, he will get every chance at Coolmore.
