High-class Invincible Army has first foal in shape of Grange Hill Stud colt
The foal is the first out of the Dutch Art mare Red Romance
The high-class Invincible Army has his first foal on the ground, with Grange Hill Stud's colt foal out of Red Romance arriving on Tuesday.
Red Romance, a winning daughter of Dutch Art, is a half-sister to the stakes-placed Isabeau and was a €135,000 purchase from Goffs Orby in 2017. Bred by Highclere Stud, this is a first foal for the five-year-old and Invincible Army.
The son of Invincible Spirit - a 95,000gns purchase from Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale - won the Group 3 Sirenia Stakes and was runner-up in the Molecomb and Gimcrack Stakes at two before landing the Pavilion Stakes, another Group 3, as a three-year-old.
Trained by James Tate for Saeed Manana, Invincible Army won the Group 2 Duke of York Stakes at four before adding the Group 3 Chipchase Stakes and a third in the Group 1 Flying Five to his CV.
He finished his 19-race career when fourth behind Glass Slippers in the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp in 2019.
The six-year-old, who stands at Yeomanstown Stud, will command a fee of €7,500 this year.
