“Te Akau Lockdown Love”
3 Apr 2020
Welcome to Day 6 of our new daily feature – as our world around us changes indelibly, we want to bring some smiles and sunshine every day – yes a small distraction but it does everyone good to be able to smile when times are tough.
Our gorgeous I Am Invincible – Berimbau filly is known to us as “Berri” and she knows what she likes in life – especially her food. She is very much a part of an “Australian Girl Crew” as she hangs out in a huge paddock with our Exceed and Excel/Addie Lane and Xtravagant/Avail fillies – all purchased by David at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale.
These girls are all pretty cheeky – but sweet with it – like all teenage girls, they are learning all about their independent thinking and often do have an opinion of their own – Berri sure does.
The upside is that their “care”, costs less than make-up, nails, hair, clothes, devices, school balls, driving lessons, etc etc etc!!
The team says she is a pleasure to have around, is super professional and a really exciting filly for the future!! AND we still have a share available in her. You could race her with Karyn who also bought a share!
Berri’s Dad is rocking the Australian racing season again – and he has produced many Group 1 winning fillies – dual Group 1 winners Viddora and Loving Gaby, as well as I Am A Star, Invincibella, Media Sensation and Oohood.
His other Group winning, stand-out fillies include – Group 2 Libertini, Invincible Gem, Miss Leonidas, Pure Elation, Fiesta., Look To The Stars, Dame Giselle and so many more Group winners including the class act Houtzen.
We reckon our Berri could be next!!
That’s her below left …
Our I Am Invincible – Berimbau was purchased by David Ellis in January at Gold Coast Yearling Sale 2020, from the draft of Bhima Thoroughbreds.
