Sire: PASTORAL PURSUITS (GB)
Dam: FETTUCCINE (IRE)
Dam Sire: INVINCIBLE SPIRIT (IRE)
The speedily-bred Invincible Pursuit is demonstrating plenty of ability on the gallops at home and looks sure to make an impact on the racecourse this season and beyond. She has a willing attitude and fine pedigree - so it will be a surprise should she not go on to win races.
Based on these early signs of encouragement, she is to be entered for the Group-3 Nell Gwyn Stakes in April and has a long-term objective of The Eternal Stakes, a Listed event in June at Carlisle.
She is a daughter of the Invincible Spirit mare Fettuccine, who was a seven-furlong winner as a three-year-old on the all-weather. Fettuccine displayed plenty of early ability as a two-year-old, notably when a half-length second to the Group-placed sprinter Hallelujah. The second dam Capannacce was a prolific winner in Italy, good enough to win at Listed-level over an extended seven-furlongs. Delving deeper into the family we find numerous multiple winners, including the outstanding Group-1 winning juvenile Tropicaro, who went on to be a highly successful broodmare - and whose progeny included Group-3 winner The Scout.
Invincible Pursuit is a daughter of the top-class sprinter/seven-furlong performer Pastoral Pursuits. A Group-3 winning juvenile, he graduated to winning at Group-2 level at three years, before experiencing his finest hour when winning the Group-1 July Cup as a four-year-old.
As well as a fine record on the racetrack, Pastoral Pursuits also boasts the pedigree, being a half- brother to Group 1 winning sprinter Goodricke. Pastoral Pursuits has become a prolific stallion in recent seasons, siring dozens of smart performers at up to a mile. His best runners include the enigmatic Group-3 winner Pastoral Player and Listed winning sprinters Perfect Pasture, Angel's Pursuit and Lightscameraction. The hallmark of the sire's progeny are speed, durability and longevity.
Invincible Pursuit has the makings of a very decent two-year-old performer, and, with a pedigree rich in multiple winners of various ages, her long-term prospects look extremely bright too.
She is currently in training with Cheshire handler Michael Mullineaux.
£180 monthly buys 5% of Invincible Pursuit, plus 5% of a yet-to-be-purchased older horse in training. This is on a one-year lease basis and includes all keep and training costs for both horses.
