Gay O’Callaghan of Yeomanstown Stud said: “We are delighted to have the oppurtunity to stand Invincible Army. He is an exceptional looking colt, who has shown his tough, honest and consistent attitude throughout his career. He is a welcome addition to our roster and I think breeders will be keen to support him.”
