The number of $1m-plus lots sold at last week’s Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale has increased to 23 following the purchase by Vic Bates of an I Am Invincible filly from blue hen Listen Here filly for $1,050,000.
Lot 392, offered by Cressfield, was initially passed in through the ring but following some swift negotiating, Bates’ Roughwood Park secured the stunning half-sister to Deep Field and Shooting To Win.
She becomes the ninth I Am Invincible yearling at Easter 2021 to realise $1m or more.
Lot 425, an I Am Invincible x Miss Atom Bomb colt from the Bhima Thoroughbreds draft, has also sold since Wednesday night’s end of sale, with Snowden Racing teaming up with Primavera Pastoral to secure the colt for $600,000.
“The new owners are going to have a lot of fun with her, she’s an exceptional filly,’’ said Cressfield’s Wayne Bedggood.
“She’s got a fabulous temperament, she’s very strong, the family is proven and she was very popular at Riverside all week but never really turned a hair.
“Cressfield and the ownership group of this filly are extremely grateful to Inglis for the hard work they put in behind the scenes to work with prospective buyers to get this filly sold.’’
