Eckstein Wins Listed Mode Plate
At Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning stallion I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit-Cannarelle, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Eckstein (I Am Invincible-Comrie, by Choisir) scored by 0.2 length for trainer Kurt Goldman in the $100,000 Listed Mode Plate (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Candika (Sebring-Divya, by Danzero) & Gibraltar Girl (Manhattan Rain-Gibraltar Campion, by Rock of Gibraltar). This was the first stakes victory for Eckstein who improved her record to 3 wins and 1 placing from 6 starts for $200,385 earnings. A $165,000 purchase at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Vinery Stud, Eckstein hails from the brilliant stakes producing Jesmond Lass family of Golden Slipper winner Canny Lad, his dual Gr1-winning sister Canny Lass, Darley's Golden Slipper and Blue Diamond Stakes winning sire Sepoy, champion filly Guelph, and Queensland Derby winner Camarena.
