Invader was unlucky to miss the Golden Slipper with a hoof abscess a fortnight ago, but trainers Peter & Paul Snowden were hopeful that would be a blessing in disguise as the colt took to the barriers this afternoon fresh.

Jumping from the gates well, the Snitzel colt took a position within the capacity field of sixteen two-year-olds as Sirconni, Summer Passage and Menari led the way.

Experiencing a carefree run in transit, Invader immediately responded when he was asked for an extra effort by Hugh Bowman with 300m to run; flying home down the outside of the pack and extending to the line to beat a gallant Summer Passage; Trapeze Artist continuing his strong and consistent career start in third position.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden was understandably thrilled with Invader’s performance to win the 2017 Inglis Sires’, but revealed that the horse’s next point of call is yet to be determined.

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks, biting out top lips with what happened in Slipper week and leading up to it,” Snowden said after the Inglis Sires’.

“Full credit has to go to our staff, they’ve done a tremendous job and we wouldn’t have been here today if it wasn’t for them.

“He’s always been looking for 1400m, so that’s been the biggest plus after just waiting and waiting for this to happen!

“Once he just lobbed into a lovely spot, Hughie just gave him every possible chance and once he popped out, he hadn’t balanced up and I was just thinking ‘come on, come on!’.

“He was certainly the strongest one late.”

Summer Passage won the Group 1 Sistema Stakes (1200m) in his native New Zealand on March 16th and was anything but disgraced in running a strong second in the Inglis Sires’.

Trapeze Artist continued to make up ground in the dying stages of the races and will potentially find ideal going in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in two weeks’ time.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  2. need business cards

    Currently it looks like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform out there
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  5. create podcasts

    Why visitors still use to read news papers when in this technological world all

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering
    issues with your website. It looks like some of the text within your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
    too? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Appreciate it

  8. gshow.globo.com

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
