Invader filly is one beautiful type of filly. Big, rangy and stands over ground and has a good nature. A very good moving filly, extremely athletic, absolutely floats along when moving. Hard to find a better type, she has it all physically and looks like all of the top shelf running fillies.

Outstanding individual that commands attention. This filly is very powerfully built and has a great head and eye. A filly with loads of presence.

There are 12 Individual Group 1 winners bred on the same pattern including RUSSIAN REVOLUTION (2 x Group 1’s) and EXTREME CHOICE (2 x Group 1’s).

Stylish Invader filly has been broken in.


INVADER a Champion son of Champion Sire Snitzel, Co champion 2yo colt in Australia 2 wins at 2. His oldest progeny are yearlings.

Invader’s victory in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes during his juvenile season was nothing short of sensational. In what was one of the strongest fields in the history of the race, Invader defeated fellow Group 1-winning Snitzel colt Summer Passage, with subsequent Champion 3YO and four-time Group 1 winner Trapeze Artist, also by Snitzel, back in third.

Invader has the all-important Australian market requirements of precocity, speed and conformation being by Snitzel out of a black-type Encosta de Lago mare he is positioned to continue the legacy of Champion Sires Danehill, Redoute’s Choice and Snitzel before him and become the next sire-sensation in Australia.

As the highest Time Form rated 2YO in history by his sire, Invader has been highly sought after with great results being achieved in the sale ring for his yearlings.

“He was a stand-out! Invader was a well-made, strong, short-coupled colt as a yearling. An attractive colt with power, he caught the eye. He had the look of a two-year-old, which I was after. He proved this with his Gr.1 two-year-old victory in the Sires’ Produce. I look forward to seeing his progeny in coming years.” – Michael Wallace, China Horse Club


Light Shows is by Show Of Heart. She won 6 races up to 1600m. This filly is her 1st foal. She is the half sister to multiple stakes performer SILVER SPUR. Light Shows is closely related to other Stake’s winners TESTASHADOW, DUSTY STAR and Champion sire ZOUSTAR.

The Trainer: PETER MOODY

Peter Moody is considered a great trainer by most in the industry arguably training the best horse the world has ever witnessed in Black Caviar. Peter Moody stats speak for themselves with 2577 career wins with 56 at Group 1 level amassing over $115 million in prizemoney.

Peter’s strike rate is not short of amazing with a win strike rate of 18% and a incredible Group 1 strike rate of 10%. He will set up his return to training with boxes at Pakenham. Peter Moody return to training has been fruitful for Blueblood Thoroughbreds and its owner with LIGHTSABER winning the Group 2 sires.

Peter Moody has commented, “I am [excited]. I’m a bit tentative about it, I’ve got to learn to get back out there and get on the tools again but not too much has changed,” he said. “I’ve got no doubt I’ll be a better trainer this time around because I’m going to be more relaxed and be able to manage my time much better, and I’ll have a smaller team.”
