Multiple Group-winning sprinter Invincible Army has been retired to stand at Yeomanstown Stud after Saeed Manana reached a deal with the County Kildare operation.
Welcome to Jamesfield Place - the home of James Tate Racing
Since sending out his first runner just over seven years ago, James has already saddled over 300 winners to win more than £3 million of prize money. His statistics also tell a story as an incredible 60% of his runners finish in the first four.
2018 started well with Saeed Manana’s Invincible Army winning the Group 3 Pavillion at Ascot easily from subsequent Commonwealth Cup winner Eqtidaar. Sultan Ali’s Hey Gaman then built on a promising third in the Greenham when finishing a gallant neck second in the French 2,ooo Guineas at Longchamp.
The good form continued with Saif Ali’s Haddaf winning the Listed Scurry stakes at Sandown and Sheikh Rashid’s Second Generation winning the Listed Prix des Reves d’Or at Vichy. Invincible Army nearly continued the winning run when going down by just a nose to subsequent Champions’ Sprint winner Sands Of Mali in a head-bobbing finish to the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock.
The stable earned nearly £700,000 in prize money across Europe last year. However, 2019 looks set to be the best season yet with Invincible Army and Hey Gaman remaining in training along with a long list of promising recent Novice winners including Name The Wind, Astonished, Sameem, Intuitive, With Caution, Promote, Top Rank, Attainment, Fields Of Athenry and Noble Lineage. Exciting times ahead…
Dream Shot and Hey Gaman became the stable’s first trans-Atlantic runners when making the journey to Santa Anita in California for the 2019 Breeders’ Cup.
