Invincible Gem Wins Gr3 Spring Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning stallion I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit-Cannarelle, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 3YO filly Invincible Gem (I Am Invincible-Diamond Day, by Marwina) scored a dominant 3.8 length win for trainer Kris Lees in the $150,000 Gr3 Spring Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO filly Faraway Town (Not a Single Doubt-London Calling, by Dehere) & 3YO gelding Salsonic (Hinchinbrook-Salsify, by Grand Lodge). Invincible Gem boosted her record to 4 wins and 2 placings from 8 starts for $237,850 earnings. Trainer Kris Lees said he would now look for another suitable black-type race for Invincible Gem over the carnival. "She has certainly surprised me this filly the level she has gone to," Lees told Sky Racing. "She's just a plain-looking little filly but she's just gone to a whole new level this preparation." Lees added: "She probably should be going for a break but it's hard to spell a filly when they are winning like that."
