Invasor (ARG)

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
F. Jara
Trainer: 
K. McLaughlin
Owner: 
Shadwell Stable
Breeder: 
Haras Clausan

A true world traveler, Invasor was bred in Argentina by Haras Clausan and made the first five starts of his career in Uruguay before suffering the first – and only – loss in a 12-race career in the 2006 United Arab Emirates Derby in Dubai. From there, the bay son of Candy Stripes reeled off six consecutive victories, all in Grade or Group 1 races, for owner Shadwell Stable and trainer Kiaran McLaughlin; the latter five under unheralded jockey Fernando Jara.

The streak began at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, where Invasor introduced himself to North America with a thrilling victory in the Pimlico Special. After winning the Suburban and Whitney handicaps, he capped a Horse of the Year campaign by taking Breeders’ Cup Classic at Churchill Downs. Invasor was retired following the 2007 Dubai World Cup with 11 wins and over $7.8 million in career earnings.
