Fifth 2YO winner for Richards

Debutante Imperatriz (I Am Invincible) became the fifth individual winning two-year-old for Te Akau Racing this season when taking out the Uzabus & Coaches 2YO (1100m) at Otaki for trainer Jamie Richards under a confident Danielle Johnson ride. 

The daughter of I Am Invincible gave the leaders a start before making ground rounding the home turn and proving too strong for her rivals on the heavy10 going.

“She was a filly that didn’t really show a lot, early doors, but the more we did the better she became and it was good tough first-up win,” Richards said.

“She missed the kick, but scooted up behind them quickly and it was a nice ride by Danielle and she handled the wet, testing conditions. We’d expect her to improve with it.

“We’ll take our time with her, but she could be seen around Christmas time at Ellerslie.”
