New Stallions for New South Wales (continued)
HELLBENT
Bay horse, 2012
Standing at Yarraman Park Stud, Scone
Fee: $27,500
Hellbent (Timeform rating 121) shapes as the logical successor to
his outstanding sire I Am Invincible as he joins his father at Yarraman
Park for the 2018 season.
He was retired after an impressive success in the 2018 William Reid
Stakes (Gr. 1, 1200m) at Moonee Valley , his first victory at the highest level.
This well deserved win came after his second in the same event a year
earlier and five other stakes placings including a third in the 2018
MRC Oakleigh Plate (Gr. 1, 1100m).
Overall Hellbent raced 23 times for seven wins and seven placings to
earn $901,450 in prizemoney.
Hellbent’s sire I Am Invincible, now standing at a fee of $192,500 and
booked out, has been a sensational stud success since his first crop
began racing in the 2013/14 season and has an ever growing list of
stakes winners.His Group One winners in addition to Hellbent are
Brazen Beau, I Am a Star and Viddora while black type winners by
the sire also include Eckstein, Houtzen, Illustrious Lad, Invincible
Gem, Invincible Star, Look To The Stars, Most Important,Overshare,
Paquirri, Santos,Super One, The Justice League and Voodoo Lad.
Volkaspray, the dam of Hellbent, won twice in Sydney and has produced
two other winners, one being Painte, three times successful in Sydney.
She is a daughter of eight times champion New Zealand sire Volksraad
and comes from the family of Zephyr Art, a good winner in Adelaide
before becoming a black type winner in the United States.

INVADER
Chestnut horse, 2014
Standing at Aquis/Emirates Park, Murrurundi
Fee: $27,500
Invader (Timeform 119) was Australia’s champion two-year-old colt of
the 2016/17 season and was Australian Timeform’s highest ever rated
juvenile colt.
Highpoint of his brief racing career came in the 2017 ATC Sires’
Produce Stakes (Gr. 1, 1400m) in which he defeated a star studded
lineup before finishing a good second in the ATC Champagne Stakes
(Gr. 1, 1600m).
Earlier he had been runner up in the ATC Todman Stakes (Gr. 2,
1200m) and won a race in Sydney so he was an outstanding two-yearold as his earnings tally of $968,375 would suggest.
Powerfully built, Invader is one of the best racing sons of his record
breaking sire Snitzel (Redoute’s Choice) who is set this season to
shatter his own earnings record to win his second straight Australian
general sires’ title and is standing for a fee of $220,000 in 2018.
Invader’s stakes winning dam Flame of Sydney, by twice champion sire
and champion broodmare sire Encosta de Lago, has proved a splendid
producer.
Her three other winners are headed by Not Listenin’tome (Dylan
Thomas), winner in Australia of the MRC Zeditave Stakes (Gr. 3) and
twice second in Group One events.
Not Listenin’tome was later sent to Hong Kong where he won four
more black type races and placed in seven other stakes events up to
Group One level.

Invader’s second dam, stakes placed Flame of Atlanta, a good winner

stakes winner Plans Awry, dam of 10 winners, notably Wry Hero and
What Can I Say, herself a very good producer.
