Dam Sire: SADLER'S WELLS (USA)
Currently in foal: no
Foal at foot: no
The attractive nine-year-old Invincible Spirit mare Lapis Blue is offered for sale. Successful once from just six starts during her own racing career, she has already produced two winners since retiring to breeding duties and retains excellent prospects.
Lapis Blue was initially trained by Dermot Weld, finishing third in a Naas maiden over a mile, before transferring to the David Evans yard, for whom she won over six-furlongs.
She is out of the Sadler's Wells mare Triple Try, whose other notable offspring include the Listed Leopardstown 2,000 Guineas Trial winner Go For Goal, the Grp-3 placed mare Unwritten Rule and the dual winner Offbeat Fashion - who has since gone on to produce the US Grade-2 placed Anita Partner. The next generation of this excellent family features the Champion Dance Design, whose seven career victories included the 1996 Irish Oaks.
With no shortage of quality on the page it is unsurprising that Lapis Blue has already made a name for herself as a breeding animal. She has given five foals to date, and the only pair to have raced thus far, Kinch and Dark Blue, are both seven-furlong winners. Her first four foals were all by Dark Angel, but her 2019 filly foal is by Scat Daddy's son El Kabeir, and has now been weaned. She was not covered in 2019.
Kinch auctioned for £95,000 as a yearling in 2017, whilst his as yet unraced two-year-old full-sibling Must Be An Angel made 35,0000gns at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze-Up Sale earlier this year. These figures confirm that the mare boasts a commercially appealing profile.
Lapis Blue's superb sire Invincible Spirit continues to climb the broodmare sire division, and in the last 12 months his daughters have produced the Grade-1 Canadian International winner Desert Encounter, the Grp-2 Celebration Mile winner Duke Of Hazzard and the Grp-3 Princess Margaret heroine Under The Stars.
Lapis Blue is an easy breeder that has gone in foal at the first attempt each year, and at just nine years of age she has many season ahead of her. Combine this with her proven track record, both on the track and in the sales ring, and it is evident that she represents bargain value at just £5,000.
