Qatar Sheikh Secures Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies' Star
The Richard Hannon-trained filly Victrix Ludorum (Invincible Spirit-Matikanehamatidori, by Sunday Silence) topped the opening session of the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale on Monday when knocked down to agent David Redvers for 220,000 guineas, reports bloodstock.racingpost.com. The daughter of Invincible Spirit was purchased by Redvers on behalf of Sheikh Fahad Al Thani, who will join his growing broodmare band. "She was a hell of a two-year-old and comes from one of the best, most current families around," said Redvers. Victrix Ludorum hails from the celebrated line of Doff The Derby, the dam of Classic winners Generous & Imagine, and the third dam of outstanding French mare Moonlight Cloud who, like Victrix Ludorum, is by Invincible Spirit. "I also think Invincible Spirit will be a very good broodmare sire," Redvers added. The talented Victrix Ludorum was stakes-placed on two occasions this season, but grabbed headlines at two when winning both the Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies' Stakes & Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies' Trophy for owner Julie Wood.
