"He’s as nice a horse as I could imagine by a sire I loved on the racetrack – he has everything I want to see in a racehorse, he’s so well put together with a great head and he moves beautifully." Trainer Michelle Payne

What more could Michelle say… other than we just had to have him!

An outstanding physical type from the family of I AM INVINCIBLE, this colt is by an exciting young sire who was a star on the racetrack!

** Broken-in and completed his first introduction to Michelle's Ballarat racing stables

** An absolute powerhouse of a colt - you could throw a saddle on his back and he wouldn’t look out of place in the mounting yard right now

** He’s an imposing, strong colt with a powerful hindquarter and forearm, big girth, good bone and great purposeful walk - he presents as an early running 2yo type


** One of the most desired first season sires this year in PRESS STATEMENT - an undefeated Group 1 winning 2yo and Group 1 Winner of the stallion making Caulfield Guineas at 3yo (same race as sires LONHRO, REDOUTE'S CHOICE, LUSKIN STAR, VAIN).

** He’s the best son of the late sire in highest demand HINCHINBROOK and this colt was the clear standout son of Press Statement to both FLR and trainer Michelle Payne


** This colt is only the 2nd foal out of the young mare Dinicanbern, not only a winner on the track herself but from a family full of winners!

** Her dam Cangino, a 2yo winner on the track and producer of 6 to race, ALL WINNERS including the Group 2 Winner TAMAANEE.

** Furthermore third dam Cannarelle by Golden Slipper winner Canny Lad, producer of 8 to race, again ALL WINNERS including this colt's close descendent, the Champion sire phenomenon I AM INVINCIBLE!

** FLR's first two yearlings with trainer Michelle Payne have sold out in race record time and this colt is already proving popular so be quick to get involved!

Please be advised March & April expenses of $199.51 have been invoiced to current owners and will be added to any new owner share purchases.
