Champion trainer Tony Gollan unleashed an exciting I Am Invincible two year-old colt at Sunshine Coast on Sunday that won as he pleased as an odds on favourite.
Nettuno was heavily backed to win the 1000m maiden despite the heavy 8 track and got the job done in style.
He travelled on the pace and accelerated away from his rivals to win by four and a half lengths with Hellbent filly Quicken Up best of the rest.
That was super impressive 🔥
Nettuno makes it 2 from 2 taking out today’s 2YO Hcp over 1200m at Doomben 🏇💨

A $500,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Yarraman Park draft for Gollan Racing/John Foote Bloodstock/Black Soil Bloodstock, Nettuno runs for a partnership that includes Segenhoe and Yarraman Park, who also bred the colt.
He is the fifth winner from five foals to race from Group III winning Galileo mare Saint Minerva and is bred on the exact same cross as $3million earning Group I winner Invincibella, who is also by I Am Invincible from a daughter of Galileo.
Yarraman Park sold the yearling colt by Hellbent from Saint Minerva at Inglis Premier this year for $210,000 to Dullingham Pty Ltd and he is her final foal.
