The Irish National Stud are delighted to announce a new initiative that will allow people the opportunity to breed, follow and sell a thoroughbred foal by purchasing shares in a foal by the King of Speed, Invincible Spirit.
INS Racing alongside our INS Mare Syndicates were developed by the Irish National Stud with the intention of growing the sport & promoting breeding in Ireland. This new venture is designed to provide yet another access point into the industry allowing shareholders to breed, own and sell a quality foal produced at a world-renowned nursery all at an affordable price.
The foal in question is a filly born on February 16th and is by the legendary Invincible Spirit. Invincible Spirit is the sire of 20 individual Group 1 winners including Kingman, Magna Grecia, Nazeef & Moonlight Cloud. Invincible Spirit has continually produced high class sales foals, with a median figure of €145,000 in 2020 & having sold filly foals for 440,000 & 600,000 over the past few years.
The filly foal is out of Irish National Stud broodmare Hanvarana, a stunning daughter of Leroidesanimaux the sire of Kentucky Derby & Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom. Bred by HH The Aga Khan before the INS purchased her Hanvarana has a deep family littered with top class animals such as dual derby winner Harzand & Gr.1 winner Seal Of Approval. Hanvarana herself is a sister to two recent black type winners in Gr.3 Thousand Guineas Trial winner Hamariyna & Gr.3 winner Hunaina.
The initiative will give ‘owners’ the opportunity to follow their foals’ story, watch as they grow and become immersed in the bloodstock world by following them to the sales at one of Ireland’s major auction houses. ‘Owners’ will be experiencing first-hand the ins and outs of quality bloodstock ownership from the foals first steps, it’s early development, it’s summer grazing through to sales preparation ahead of the big day at the sales in November.
Speaking about the initiative, Cathal Beale, CEO, Irish National Stud, said:
‘’After the great successes we have had with our Mare Syndicates model we are delighted to create another unique opportunity for people to get involved in the breeding industry, for a modest fee and follow the life of a foal from birth through to selling in November. The aim will be to sell for a profit on the investment but the guarantee will be a shared ownership experience like no other.”
Patrick Diamond, Bloodstock and Nominations, Irish National Stud commented:
‘’She is a filly of real quality, from day one she has looked very classy. She walks extremely well with a huge overstride, she really has a presence about her. In time she will have great appeal as race filly by Invincible Spirit having such a strong family behind her”
There are 400 shares available to purchase for a once off payment of €330.95 per share (including taxes and charges). To reserve shares in the Invincible Spirit filly foal x Hanvarana please visit the link https://www.equideq.com/horse/7
