Magna Grecia

This son of sire of sires Invincible Spirit won the Gr.1 Vertem Futurity at two and followed up with a decisive success in the Gr.1 2,000 Guineas at three. He now merits even more respect, following the classic victories of his younger half-brother St Mark’s Basilica.

Much of Invincible Spirit’s success has been with MR PROSPECTOR line mares. He has Gr.1 winners out of mares by KINGMAMBO, MACHIAVELLIAN (2), GULCH and SEEKING THE GOLD, and his son Kingman is out of a daughter of ZAMINDAR. He has two Group winners and a Listed winner with mares by LEMON DROP KID and has done well with daughters of KING’S BEST. His Gr.1 winner Nazeef and Gr.2 winner Shartash are out of DUBAWI mares.

Invincible Spirit sired the classic-winning Lawman from a mare by GULCH and Kingman has sired the top-class Palace Pier from a grand-daughter of GULCH, by NAYEF. Other sons of Invincible Spirit have Group winners with dams by MACHIAVELLIAN, SMART STRIKE, STREET CRY, KING’S BEST, DUBAI DESTINATION, GONE WEST, SPEIGHTSTOWN, VETTORI, OBSERVATORY, ELUSIVE CITY, MAKFI and EMPIRE MAKER.

Invincible Spirit has 13% SWs out of MACHIAVELLIAN mares and 14% SWs with mares by STREET CRY. This makes daughters of LOPE DE VEGA, with his 3x3 inbreeding to MACHIAVELLIAN, an attractive option.

Invincible Spirit has seven black-type winners (15%) out of INDIAN RIDGE mares and has a Gr.3 winner from an INCHINOR mare. His son Lawman also has Group winners with dams by INDIAN RIDGE and INCHINOR, and his juvenile Gr.1 winner Pretty Gorgeous has a dam by COMPTON PLACE, another son of Indian Ridge.

ACCLAMATION is broodmare sire of Invincible Spirit’s Gr.1 winner Eqtidaar. DARK ANGEL is also likely to work well with Magna Grecia, as are daughters of MEHMAS.

PIVOTAL has a very impressive record with both Invincible Spirit and Galileo. It was a son of Pivotal, SIYOUNI, who sired Magna Grecia’s classic-winning half-brother St Mark’s Basilica.

Invincible Spirit has had success with DANZIG inbreeding, his high-class juvenile Shalaa and his fast son Muthmir both being inbred 3x3. Kingman has Group winners from mares by DANSILI (3), CHAMPS ELYSEES, DANEHILL DANCER and EXCEED AND EXCEL, and his classic-winning son Persian King has a dam by DYLAN THOMAS. Other sons of Invincible Spirit have Group winners with dams by CHOISIR, CLODOVIL and DANDY MAN.

Kingman has SWs out of mares by CAPE CROSS and SEA THE STARS, therefore inbred 3x3 and 3x4 to GREEN DESERT.

Invincible Spirit has Group winners out of mares by ROBERTO line sires SILVER HAWK, DYNAFORMER and ARCH.

Invincible Spirit’s fast son Spirit Quartz had a dam by RAINBOW QUEST and his top-class daughter Moonlight Cloud is out of a mare by Rainbow Quest’s son SPECTRUM.

Invincible Spirit has Group winners out of mares by STORM CAT and his sons GIANT’S CAUSEWAY and HENNESSY, and his sons have Group winners out of mares by STATUE OF LIBERTY and GIANT’S CAUSEWAY.

Invincible Spirit’s top miler Charm Spirit has a dam by MONTJEU. Although Magna Grecia has a dam by Galileo, he could thrive with Montjeu mares, as there are Gr.1 winners inbred 3x3 to SADLER’S WELLS via Galileo and Montjeu.

Invincible Spirit’s fast sons Cable Bay and Invincible Army have dams by Warning’s son DIKTAT. Lawman’s classic winner Harbour Watch has a second dam by WARNING.
