The Ascot Stud based Grand Mary, whose progeny include the smart performers Grand Silvano and Mary O’ Reilly, recently gained a handsome boost to her impressive pedigree page when her close relative Invincible Army landed the Listes Unibet Cammidge Trophy Stakes over 1200m at Doncaster.
Trained by James Tait, the talented four-year-old romped home under jockey PJ McDonald to land the Listed Cammidge Trophy by two lengths and is now likely to be aimed at both the G1 Haydock Sprint Cup and G2 Duke Of York Stakes.
A son of Invincible Spirit, Invincible Army has now won or placed in nine of 12 starts, with his previous victories including both the 2017G3 totepool Sirenia Stakes and 2018 G3 Meriebelle Stable Pavilion Stakes.
He is out of the G1 Falmouth Stakes winner Rajeem –a half-sister to Grand Mary.
The latter, a daughter of Kyllachy, is out of the Cadeaux Genereux mare Magic Sister, a full-sister to short-lived G1 Prix Morny winner Hoh Magic.
Grand Mary has a beautiful weanling filly by Global View and is back in foal to that exciting son of Galileo.
