First foal for 2006 Horse of the Year Invasor
THE first foal by multiple Grade 1 winner Invasor was born at the stallion's residence, Shadwell Farm near Lexington, Kentucky, on Sunday.
The foal is a colt out of the five-year-old Irish-bred Danehill mare Abby Road, a Listed winner for Brian Meehan who was sold to Shadwell for $875,000 at the Keeneland November sale in 2007. She is booked to visit Daaher in the forthcoming breeding season.
An Argentine-bred son of Candy Stripes, Invasor was a champion in Uruguay before being transferred to be trained in the US. His six Grade 1 victories included the Breeders' Cup Classic and the Dubai World Cup.
