Home' Breeding and Racing : Issue 118 December 2014 Contents of I Am Invincible’s first Group 1 winner,
Brazen Beau, began at the 2013 sale.
Grant Morgan of Ontrack Thoroughbreds
was looking for yearlings by first crop stallions,
in particular by the handsome and fast I
Am Invincible at Australian yearling sales in
2013. The Inglis Classic Summer Book put 23
yearlings by the grandson of Invincible Spirit
through the Newmarket ring.
Morgan was drawn to Lot 3, a colt
from Canberra Black Opal Stakes, Gr.3
placegetter Sansadee. Morgan remembered
Sansadee as a very quick two-year old and
also knew Bernie Howlett who bred the colt
and trained his mother.
“I ended up with a short list for the sale,
mostly full of youngsters by I Am Invincible,
who throws such a good type, but trust is
a big thing when you are buying a yearling
and I’ve known Bernie and his family for
years,” said Grant Morgan.
“Bernie was quite upbeat about the colt and
thought he’d be a likely type to run at two. I
knew he would have had the very best start to
life and was the right product to spend money
on with confidence,” adds Morgan.
Victories soon came for Brazen Beau
including a win over subsequent Group 1
winner Hampton Court on debut before
more success in the BRC Champagne
Stakes, Gr2 in Brisbane. His two-year-old
season finished with narrow defeats in the
BRC Sires’ Produce, Gr2 and the BRC JJ
Atkins Stakes, Gr1.
In the spring Brazen Beau continued
to flourish, winning the Group 2 ATC
Roman Consul Stakes in very fast time,
before venturing to Melbourne for victory
in his ultimate goal, the Group 1 VRC
Coolmore Stud Stakes. Brazen Beau’s sale
price of $70,000 at Inglis Classic is now just
10 percent of his racetrack earnings and a
much smaller fraction of his tremendous

Syndication began at Inglis Classic where
the filly was purchased from Torryburn Stud
for $45,000. The Myboycharlie filly won
the $250,000 RL Inglis Classic in January
before her way to Group 1 glory in the ATC
Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes during The
Championships. With $900,000 in earnings
the story of Peggy Jean is full of highlights
already for her syndicator, owners and
trainer Gerald Ryan.
Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller
is a big fan of Inglis Classic, with $38,000
purchase Pressday giving Waller his first
two-year-old Group 1 winner in Australia as
both a trainer and a part-owner.
“ The Classic Sale has been tremendous
to me in not only providing me with my
first Group 1 winner in Triple Honour
but also a Group 1 winner in Pressday
who went on to be sold as a stallion. He
unfortunately passed away before reaching
his true potential in the breeding barn. The
Verminator was also a Group 1 winner I’ve
trained from the sale and of course Brazen
Beau. Sprinters, stayers and stallions - year
in, year out, they can be purchased from this
sale,” says Waller.
The stories of Brazen Beau, Peggy Jean
and many other current Classic graduates are
far from complete, as is the story of the new
Inglis Classic Yearling Sale Summer Book.
Buyers will get every opportunity to
create a new tale of success at Inglis Classic
on 8, 9 and 10 February 2015.
at Group 1 level after graduating from the
Inglis Classic Sale. Each of those respective
sires went on to stand at a fee well in excess
of what was paid for their early Group 1
winners at Inglis Classic.
Peggy Jean (by Myboycharlie) and
Pressday (by Domesday) are two-year-old
Group 1 winners from the early crops of
their respective sires that have their origins
at Inglis Classic.
