Leading Newcastle trainer Paul Perry paid $120,000 for the I Am Invincible from Kiss Me Sophie.

“He is a colt who wouldn’t have been out of place at much bigger sales than this’’ Perry said of the record breaker.


"He’s a real athletic-looking I Am Invincible. I’ve seen plenty of his progeny over the past few sales and this fella really looked the part, even better than some of those at the other major sales.

“[I Am Invincible] is doing an amazing job. They come on quick, and they train on too, so you can’t ask for much more than that from a stallion."
