In a move that further illustrates the global prowess of the operation, Yulong and partners landed 10-time Group 1 winner Imperatriz (Aus) (I Am Invincible {Aus}) for a record $6.6m at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.

It was Yulong that saw off the attention of Coolmore for the superstar racemare with the new connections of Imperatriz revealing that the 5-year-old is likely to remain retired from racing.

Bidding for the 13-time winner, who was trained for the majority of her career by Mark Walker, opened up at a whopping $4m. It was Yulong’s Zhijun Zhao who did the bidding online to secure the winning bid.

American billionaire John Stewart, who was vocal in the build-up to the sale and even vowed to pay up to $6 million for Imperatriz, was not involved in the bidding. The previous broodmare sale record set in Australia was $5 million for Milanova back in 2008.
