Lot 19 bay colt by I Am Invincible – Palace Talk (Street Cry) (draft: Yarraman Park) 

Te Akau principal David Ellis CNZM struck early when buying the colt by reigning Australia Champion Sire I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit), the sire of stable headline act and eight-time Group One winner Imperatriz, whom Ellis also purchased on the Gold Coast. Standing at Yarraman Park, I Am Invincible has the highest priced service fee ($302,000) in Australia. 

Out of a mare by international stallion Street Cry (Machiavellian), a Dubai World Cup winner, who famously sired the greatest of all time, Winx – 25 Group One wins. The mare has already left a Group Two winning brother, Shuffle Dancer (I Am Invincible), who won the Angus Armanasco Stakes (Gr. 2, 1400m) for three-year-olds, the triple Group Three placed sister Forbidden City (I Am Invincible), and the multiple stakes placed winner of six races, Never Talk (No Nay Never), who also finished fourth in the Surround Stakes (Gr. 1, 1400m) as a three-year-old filly. His grand-dam, Doduo, is by breed-shaping stallion Danehill (Danzig), who provides an outstanding influence in any pedigree. Doduo was a speedy mare and proved herself as a producer with eight individual winners of 23 races. 

“We were firm in our desire to buy him, as he’s such a high quality individual,” Ellis said. “He’s in the mould of his sire, I Am Invincible, whose progeny continue to do such an incredible job on the race tracks. “It’s an outstanding pedigree and it’s a very progressive family that has already left plenty of black type winners.”

Yarraman Park Yearling manager Lance Forbes added: “He’s a strong, athletic colt that moves well and look like he’ll get up and run early. “He’s got a great head and girth, and fantastic attitude to match it all. “He’s one of the most easy-going colts I’ve ever dealt with, to be honest. He’s got a lovely nature and lovely kind eye. “I think the owners will have a lot of fun with this horse; he’s a beautiful animal.” The colt carries a Danzig cross, on the sire line of I Am Invincible and dam line of Palace Talk.
