Bay | 16.2hh | 2015 | I Am Invincible ex Ghaliah (AUS) by Secret Savings


$8,000 +GST


The only son of breed shaper and emerging sire of sires I Am Invincible in NZ, an all-time Australian record holder for the amount of SW in a season (27). The good-looking Santos was a fast and precocious juvenile trained by the all-conquering Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott stable.

Santos is off to a great start at stud with G1 winner ULANOVA and Listed winner WEST OF DALBY.

A winner at the early Spring 2YO trials, Santos made his debut with a solid third in the Listed ATC Breeders Plate.

Commencing his autumn campaign with an easy victory in the $150,000 ATC Pierro Plate (1100m) at Randwick, he then booked his place in the G1 ATC Golden Slipper (1200m) with a tenacious win in the G2 ATC Skyline Stakes (1200m), a race which historically attracts a high-class field of colts and has been a great stallion-making race, won in the past by Snitzel, Choisir, Hinchinbrook and Manhattan Rain.

Bred by Emirates Park, Santos comes from one of their most successful families being a half-brother to Japanese G3 winner Melagrana from a half-sister to Group winners Mutawaajid, Adeewin and Fatoon, the dam of G1 ATC Epsom Handicap (1600m) winner Fat Al.

Completely free of Danehill blood, Santos has the good looks, natural speed and quality that are the hallmarks of his famous sire I Am Invincible.

His first crop of yearlings sold up to $150,000!

“Santos has kicked off his career in fantastic fashion and has a Group One winner in Ulanova from his first crop. There is immeasurable upside with a stallion of his looks and credentials.”

Aquis Stallions Director of Sales, Jonathan Davies.

“When my son Kurtis and I inspected Santos, we were really taken by him as an individual. He has a huge masculine presence, terrific conformation and as impressive a type as you could hope to see."
