Pocket rocket sprinter Impregnable continued his super run of form with another big win at Doomben on Saturday.
The nuggety son of I Am Invincible completed a 24 hour hat-trick of wins by Ontrack Thoroughbred horses following wins by Zoff Of The World at Ipswich on Friday evening and Che Bella Vita at the Gold Coast.
“It’s certainly been a fantastic start to the season with Ontrack horses and there’s not a horse in our team going better than Impregnable,” said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.
“Saturday’s win was his fifth win from seven starts since we moved him to Toby Edmonds on the Gold Coast and he’s run third and fourth in the other two.
“After his previous run when he also won at Doomben, Toby popped the horse out for a week at his farm and kept him up to the mark with a bit of treadmill work and that’s freshened him up and he was pretty dominant on Saturday.
“We’ve never had a horse stay up for so long and simply keep putting in every time you send him to the races.
“He’s a true example of what makes his sire I Am Invincible a champion stallion in that they are genuine and sound racehorses who put in every start.
“We paid only $40,000 for Impregnable at the 2015 Inglis Classic Sale and our only regret is that the days of buying yearlings by I Am Invincible for that sort of money are well and truly gone.
“Since we paid $70,000 for Brazen Beau from the first crop of I Am Invincible we have bought another seven yearlings by the sire and we’d like to buy plenty more but sadly the market price just keeps going up and up,” said Grant Morgan.
Toby Edmonds reported Impregnable had come through his race in fantastic order and continues to thrive in spite of a busy campaign.
“He pulled up in fantastic order for a horse that’s been pretty busy, so we will let him enjoy a week in the paddock at the farm and then reassess.
“He is really working through the grades in pretty impressive fashion and we will just see how he comes through the latest win before making any firm plans,” said Toby Edmonds.
