Do you remember the flashy, gorgeous flying machine from Queensland named HOUTZEN (I Am Invincible – Set To Unleash)?

Well, she is retired now. As a 6-year-old today, she did enough winning 7 races and earning $2,012,525 during her racing career.

Today, on a new career path, she gave foal to her first baby, a son in Lexington, Kentucky.

He’s by the champion racehorse, turned champion sire Curlin and he bears a striking resemblance to his dear old dad.

The blaze is very similar and both he and dad have big white sox on their hind legs.

The colt was born at Stonestreet Farm in Kentucky.

Houtzen, of course won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic worth $2million as a 2YO, and later in life ran the grant Nature Strip, who races today at Randwick, to a short head in record time at Moonee Valley in the Gr 2 McEwen Stakes over 1000m.

And, timely is as timely does, on this VERY day three years ago, Houtzen was 3rd at Randwick in the Fireball as the $2.80 fav.

CURLIN (Smart Strike – Sherriff’s Deputy) when retired in 2008 was the highest earning US racehorse in history (US$10.5million) at the time after claiming the 2007 Preakness Stakes, the 2007 Breeders’ Classic, Woodward Stakes and the big one, the 2008 Dubai World Cup…all Gr 1 races.

He was the American Horse Of The Year in 2008.

In 2018 his service fee was US$150,000 and he has sired 11 x Gr 1 winners to date.
