At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning stallion I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit-Cannarelle, by Canny Lad) added a Group race success when 4YO bay mare I Am A Star (I Am Invincible-Star Band, by Dixieland Band) returned to her brilliant best when scoring a front-running win in the $200,000 Gr2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) for 4YO+ mares, defeating Flying Jess & Hell Or Highwater. The well-bred I Am A Star, who became the first filly in history to win the Gr1 Myer Classic last spring, advanced her record to 7 wins (including the Gr1 Myer Classic, Gr2 Sunline Stakes, Gr2 Kewney Stakes, Gr3 Quezette Stakes & Gr3 SAJC National Stakes) and 4 placing (including the Gr1 MRC Thousand Guineas, Gr2 Moonee Valley Fillies' Classic & Gr2 Rubiton Stakes) from 19 starts for $1,188,200 in earnings. Originally purchased for NZ$12,000 at the 2014 NZB Weanling, Broodmare & Mixed Bloodstock Sale, I Am A Star was subsequently sold for $40,000 to James Harron Bloodstock at the 2015 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale from the draft of Broadwater Thoroughbreds (now Bhima).
