The fourth million dollar lot of the day came earlier in the day where Sydney based bloodstock agent James Harron went to $1.1 million to secure the I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) colt out of Meliora (Ad Valorem) from the Yarraman Park Stud draft.

Offered as Lot: 253, the colt is out of the Group Two winning Ad Valorem (Danzig) mare Meliora making him a brother to Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) (Gr 3) winner I Am Immortal (I Am Invincible). 

Meliora, who was bought for $240,000 by BBA Ireland at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale in 2014, has produced two other winners including Top Star Sun (I Am Invincible) who was bought by Katsumi Yoshida for $650,000 at the Gold Coast in 2020 and is a winner at two in Japan. She also has a yearling filly by I Am Invincible and visited the sire again last October. 

"He's got a lovely fast pedigree," Harron said. "Obviously the mare has done it with I Am Invincible and having looked at her stock over the last few years I thought he was probably the best she'd thrown.

"He had a great attitude right through the sale and he looks a really precocious type of horse which we think can get up and run early."

I Am Invincible has had 15 yearlings sell so far, averaging $598,667.
