Aurum Invader

3 Jan 2001, Chestnut, 16hh

Service Fee $1400

Invader is by Brilliant Invader who was an Australian-bred thoroughbred racehorse stallion who stood initially in New Zealand before returning to Australia around 1989. Brilliant Invader sired many highly succesful showjumping and eventing horses including Ready Teddy (Olympic Gold Medallist with Blyth Tait of NZ), Mousetrap (Jane Griffin), Marine Park Invader and Street Talk (Michelle Clark). While in New Zealand, Brilliant Invader sired a string of successful showjumpers as well as the aforementioned Ready Teddy.

Right now in Australia there are a number of Brilliant Invader line horses competing succesfully at the top level ridden by well-known competitors such as Atlanta Gold Medallist Wendy Schaeffer (Koyuna Sun Shine, Sun Dancer and Sun Storm), Heath Ryan, Brooke Dobbin (Woodmount Crusader) and Becky Allen (Koyuna Ted). The 2007-2008 season has seen numerous wins by these horses at many of the country's premier eventing and showjumping competitions.

It's probably not surprising in retrospect that Brilliant Invader sired so many great jumpers; his blood includes the great Precipitation, possibly one of the most influential jumping sires of all time. Precipitation sired Furioso whose own stallion sons have dominated jumping breeding in France, Germany, Holland and Belgium for many, many years.

Invader's dam, Tidal Wave, was a supremely talented cross country horse who could easily have excelled at showjumping as well. She was a qualified three star horse whose career was unfortunately curtailed due to accident. Her full sister went on to four star level and was sold to the USA. Tidal Wave was by Flooding, a horse who sired several top showjumpers including Another Flood. Flooding also has the jumping world's 'root' sire Precipitation in his pedigree as well as important sires including the Son In Law/Dark Ronald/Bay Ronald family tree which have so influenced both the dressage and jumping fields in European warmblood breeding.

With this heritage, you'd have to expect great things from Invader's progeny. His first foals are on the ground now and display great temperaments, excellent conformation and very good movement indeed.
