I Am Invincible x Woodstock Hussey (by Hussonet)
Standing at Canungra, QLD
An exciting juvenile, with exceptional speed, Kobayashi won his first two starts by more than a combined five length margin, highlighted by success in the Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup (1200m) at Caulfield, a race won in the past by the unbeaten Champion and multiple Horse of the Year Black Caviar.
The first son of the breed-shaper and recording-breaking sire I Am Invincible to stand at stud in Queensland, Kobayashi has been extremely popular with breeders, covering a significantly larger second book of mares than he did in his first season.
As a complete outcross to Danehill blood, Kobayashi’s pedigree is littered with not only 2YO winners, but black type 2YOs and being by one of Australia’s leading sires, Kobayashi is an extremely exciting proposition and we look forward to his first crop weanlings selling in 2020.
"Best foal the mare has had! A lovely colt with lots of body, great bone and size, and best of all...smart! We will definitely be breeding to him again."
Mike Cleary, Clear Summer Lodge
"If this colt is indicative of what the Kobayashi stock look like, he's a real chance of making it. He's a forward, mature colt with a real presence, but most importantly, he has plenty of the I Am Invincible physical traits about him."
Kellie Bond, Kenmore Lodge
"Kobayashi encapsulated everything that Australia looks for in a stallion; 2YO speed, strength, a great family and he is by the right stallion. It was such a shame that we never got to see his true potential. His dominance over the 1200m at Caulfield as a 2YO was amazing! He is a speed machine and I look forward to seeing the bone, muscle and strength that he will shoot into his progeny."
