$1.25 Million I Am Invincible Filly Sold by Widden Stud
Widden Stud made a big investment at the 2019 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale paying $1million for stakes-winning Shamardal (USA) mare Vezalay in foal to I Am Invincible and the filly she was carrying hit a home run at Inglis Easter on Tuesday when selling for $1.25 million.
A beautiful bay with plenty of scope, she is the first seven figure result at this sale champion sire I Am Invincible and is in fact his most expensive yearling filly ever sold.
The star filly caught the eye of renowned bloodstock agent Guy Mulcaster, who purchased her for a partnership between Hermitage Thoroughbreds and Coolmore with Chris Waller to train.
“We saw her up at the farm three weeks ago and she’s just kept improving right through her preparation,” Guy Mulcaster told Inglis’s Jemma Cutting.
“I took Chris to see her here the other day and he loved her, so we bought her although she was at the top end of our budget.”
Vezalay was a slick Group II placed sprinter and there is plenty of speed in the female family which has already had Black Type success with I Am Invincible producing stakes-winning juvenile Parlophone.
Vezalay has a Zoustar filly to follow and is back in foal again to our champion sire.
