Progressive filly Invincible Heart took another step towards black type with her first City win at Caulfield.
After being sent back to the trials following an uncustomary bucking display at Morphetville last start when third, Invincible Heart atoned for that defeat at her home track debut.
Prepared by leading Caulfield trainer Mick Price, Invincible Heart overcome a stiff headwind down the side to lead all the way over the 1200m under stable jockey Craig Newitt.
The Caulfield win takes Invincible Heart's record to 2 wins and 2 placings from just 4 starts.
A second crop daughter of I Am Invincible, Invincible Heart now heads to the $150,000 Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 10 October.
She will then be freshened for a tilt at the $200,000 Group 3 Gucci Stakes (1100m) at Flemington on Oaks Day 5 November.
Like the year older Brazen Beau, Invincible Heart was selected and purchased by Grant Morgan of Ontrack Thoroughbreds from the Inglis Classic Sale. She was $56,000 purchase from the draft of Edinglassie Stud.
