Kennewell trained I Am Invincible’s Group 1-winning daughter Viddora and together with his bloodstock agent, Mat Becker of Group 1 Bloodstock, was especially keen to secure Lot 63, the daughter of the Yarraman Park champion and Redoute’s Choice mare Les Amoureux.

From the family of Golden Slipper winner Polar Success and Group 2 winner Sambro, the filly, offered by Baramul Stud, broke the previous record of $375,000 for a filly through the sale.       

“She was a bloody good filly. She could have been on the Gold Coast or at Easter for sure. One of the best Vinnie fillies I have seen all year and we see a lot of them, and there is a lot of million-dollar Vinnie fillies floating around,” Kennewell said.
