Japanese Superstar to stand in Queensland

Neorealism, the conqueror of local champions Werther and Pakistan Star, in the Group One Queen Elisabeth 11 Cup, is heading to stud in Queensland after being secured to stand at Oaklands Stud.

The outstanding galloper, a Group One winner in Hong Kong, and Group Two star in his native Japan, will provide Australian breeders with a great outcross as they plan to breed the racetrack’s next star.

A son of Sunday Silence ‘s influential sire son Neo Universe , Neorealism won eight of his 23 lifetime starts for trainer Noriyuki Hori, and was ridden in his big Hong Kong success by one of the world’s great riders, Joao Moreira.

Neorealism is a three quarter brother to the dual hemisphere Group One winning stallion Real Impact.

Both Real Impact and Neorealism, as well as two other stakes performers, are from the top producing Meadowlake mare, Tokio Reality.

“We are thrilled to be able to stand a horse as well bred and internationally performed as Neorealism”

“H e has the attributes to develop into a successful sire and he is a great addition to the sire ranks in Queensland”

“The horse is a wonderful individual, very strong, perfectly put together and has a great temperament “

“Neorealism will not only be supported by Oaklands, but a syndicate of Japanese breeders will also retain interests in the entire, and he wil get every chance at stud,” said Neville Stewart.

The introductory service fee for Neorealism is $9,900 (inc GST)

Celebrations at Yarraman Park

There were good reasons for celebration at Yarraman Park with its current sire, I Am Invincible, establishing a new record siring 27 Stakes winners in a single season.

With still about 10 weeks of the season remaining he could stretch it out further, he is siring winners continuously and he is performing extremely well, he is a great sire, that is beyond question.

Previously he was sharing the lead with Snitzel and Danehill, he has mixed with very elite company.

The race was sponsored by Yarraman, and Woodlands, for fillies over 1100 metres, the winner, Libertini, is by I Am Invincible, she was a last start winner out of Aloha by Encosta De lago, whilst the second placegetter, Regimental Band, is also by I Am Invincible.

He has already proven a highly successful sire, and now a sire of sires, evidenced by his son Brazen Beau, who has got away to a brilliant beginning.

Australian bred sires can stand tall, provided they are not excessively raced, evidenced by Redoutes Choice, Flying Spur,Snitzel, I Am Invincible and Zoustar, all million dollar earners.

The sprinting sire stands alone, no one is very much interested in staying horses any longer, the sale ring is evidenced of that, it is all about a quick return on investment.

Weaner Tops Sales

A weaner filly offered by Kitchwin Hills stole the show when she was knocked down for $600,000 at this week’s Sydney Sales.

Even the vendor was shocked, he didn’t think he would top the sale, however the bidding was spirited, she is going to make into a lovely yearling, but whether she would be pinned hooked is most unlikely .

She was listed as lot 104, the foal was by the all conquering sire, I Am Invincible, the second foal of her dam, Srikandi, won nine races, five in succession, including the Stradbroke Handicap.

Three dams on the catalogue page had produced 47 winners, we will be awaiting Srikandi first foal, a yearling will be most interesting.

I Am Invincible Joins Elite Co.

I Am Invincible has joined the elite company of Snitzel and Danehill in siring 26 stakes winners in a single season.

With three months of the current racing season remaining there is every possibility he can squeeze out another stakes winner, thereby claiming the title in his own right.

Racing moves to Queensland during the winter months where several stakes races are decided, he only needs the one winner to be an outright winner.

I Am Invincible commenced his stud career in 2010, his service fee was then $11,000, he has come a long way in those nine years, it has been an upward spiral that dreams are made of, starting from the bottom at a service fee of $11,000, he has now reached the pinnacle by success only, his service fee has now reached the highest in the southern hemisphere at $247,500.

Success breeds success, he has done it the hard way, the Mitchell family are on cloud nine and they can be proud of what they have achieved with I Am Invincible.

I Am Invincible has come a long way in those nine years, it was never going to be easy, however, the hard yards are over for the present, he is well established as a highly prominent sire.

He is assured of good mares; they are almost waiting at the gate, only the best will be going to the best.

His current crop of two year old fillies won three legs of the Princess Series; all have since been put away until the spring.

I Am Invincible was joined by his son, Hellbent, last year after winning the Group 1William Reid Stakes 2018 on the Friday night, Monday morning he was bound for Yarraman, he has since let down into a lovely horse.

He has since covered 182 mares, he was given time, that is the whole ingredient of the thoroughbred breeding industry, he has let down well, we can only await his foals that are not far away now.

Widden will be the pace setter this season with the inclusion of the four time Group1 winner, Trapeze Artist, and Written By, both to stand at Widden Stud for the forth coming breeding season.

He won’t lack for opportunities at Widden having won four Group1s, they are like gold, success is almost assured.
