This outstanding filly is by a proven sire out of a high class and well related I Am Invincible mare in Show Bender.
I loved her from the moment I saw her at Yarraman Park in early December 2020 and was thrilled when she vetted out without any issues.
The filly is incredibly athletic with a nice depth of girth and great hindquarter. This was a trait for many of the progeny of Spirit Of Boom in this sale.
Spirit Of Boom was a very fast horse by Sequalo who did a great job on the track and at stud. We were lucky enough to race Holding who was one of Sequalo's first good horses. Spirit Of Boom has followed on in his sire Sequalo's steps producing tough sound sprinters.
Spirit Of Boom was a Group 1 winner out of a very good mare in Temple Spirit who through the Group 1 winner Temple Of Boom. He did a remarkable job at stud and was 2nd on the Australian First Season List in the 2017/18 Season behind Zoustar. He achieved despite a very average book of mares.
He is currently 24th on the Australian Sires List which is a good effort. Given the high quality of this crop of yearlings, I would expect him to start moving up this list once they start racing.
Show Bender was a three time metropolitan winner out of a Hussonet mare Gold Licence who threw the stakes horses Convincible and Nicci's Gold. I love Hussonet mares. He has been a major force in Australian racing. His daughters are outstanding broodmares throwing 165 stakes horses.
Show Bender comes from a very strong female line which includes Champion sire Redoute's Choice as well as Hurricane Sky, Umatilla and Al Maher to name a few.
It is very early days for I Am Invincible as a broodmare sire but I expect him to be a great success in this role. They are such attractive mares with great conformation and bone.
This crop of yearlings are out of a very good group of mares. I'm thrilled to offer this filly, she is a cracker.
Kris Lees will train the filly from his Newcastle base but has a Gold Coast base and has regularly conducted successful raids up north.
