At Caulfield in Melbourne, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning stallion I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit-Cannarelle, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 6YO gelding Voodoo Lad (I Am Invincible-O'Fortuna, by Gilded Time) produced his trademark withering late burst to emphatically win the Gr3 $150,000 The Heath 1100 (1100m) for 4YO+, over the late closing So Si Bon & Crystal Dreamer. Again showing his affinity for the Caulfield circuit, he took his record to 10 wins (including the Gr3 Moonga Stakes, Listed Regal Roller Stakes & Listed MVRC SAJ Fruit Supply Stakes) and 9 placings (including the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap, Gr1 MRC Sir Rupert Clarke Handicap & Listed VRC All Victorian Series Final Handicap) from 22 starts to push through the million dollar mark with $1,055,160 earnings. A modest $36,000 purchase by Segenhoe Stud at the 2013 Inglis Select Scone Yearling Sale, Voodoo Lad hails from the same family as champion grey sprinter and 8-time Gr1 winner Schillaci.
