Yarraman Park’s champion sire I Am Invincible provided undefeated world champion sprinter Black Caviar with her third winner as a broodmare when her three year-old filly Invincible Caviar saluted at Sale on Sunday.
Third behind the exciting Frankel filly Argentia at her career debut at Flemington in June, the Peter Moody trained Invincible Caviar kick-started her three-year-old campaign on a winning note over 1130m.
Controlling the race from the front under Jamie Kah, she needed little more than a flick of the reins to defeat Xtra Gear by a long-neck.

“She (Kah) was pretty soft on her,” winning trainer Peter Moody told Racing.com.
“She just did what she had to, and I asked her to do that knowing there was good improvement in her.
“It’s always nice to win, and with a filly like her, it’s important to get a win on the pedigree. It was just pleasing to see her get the job done softly like that.
“I’ve got a group of fillies like her and Gimmie Par and a few others at home that have been working nicely together, so that gives you a nice feel that when you come to a maiden, you should be running well.”
Kah said she always felt she had the race under control.
“She was too strong. She didn’t have an economical run just with a few other horses pestering her early,” Kah said.
“I could feel them coming, but she was never in doubt in my mind, she was always going to win, and I didn’t want to knock her around.
“She’s going to win some better races off that. I think she will get better when she has one or two horses in front of her to follow, but she’s got a lot of improvement there.”
Moody nominated the indicated $160,000 Listed Cap d’Antibes (1100m) at Flemington on September 11 as the immediate target.
Invincible Caviar is the third winner from four to race out of the undefeated champion Black Caviar, who has a two year-old colt to follow by I Am Invincible called I Am Caviar.
