Three-year-old filly Unconquerable started her career with a bang, winning on debut at Caulfield over 1100m.
Unconquerable had been impressive in three jump outs to date and the daughter of I Am Invincible justified the short quote of $1.85 to defeat raced filly Flying Mean.
Unconquerable was a $180,000 buy for the stable from the 2022 Inglis Australian Easter yearling sale, the cheapest daughter of I Am Invincible at the sale that year, and Mick Price spoke about what drew him to her.
“She is quite a sizable horse, she is sort of a little bit ugly,” Price told Racing.com after the win. “The purists would look at her and say ‘how did he buy that?’ with her sway back and boof head but I liked the movement of her. “I think she’s a black-type horse coming.”
The day after the victory, Price outlined plans for Unconquerable to return to the races in the New Year. “On the sixth of January there is a $150,000 three-year-old race, so she can have a little freshen up and if all the signs are right she can line up at Geelong for her next start.
“We have always been gentle with her because of her size and immaturity so if she needs to go for a spell, she’ll go for a spell.”
Unconquerable has been well managed by the team, with credit to go to her trackwork rider and strapper Tahli. Congratulations to all owners on the win.
