This year's G1 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}-Cabaret {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) has been retired from racing and will stand at Coolmore Stud in 2020. A fee will be announced at a later date.

A 340,000gns yearling, Magna Grecia was a debut winner at two and won the G1 Vertem Futurity Trophy on his third start. He was a first-up winner of the 2000 Guineas in May, with that form franked just last weekend when the second King of Change (GB) (Farhh {GB}) won the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. at Ascot. Also in his wake at Newmarket were Group 1 winners Ten Sovereigns (Ire) (No Nay Never), Advertise (GB) (Showcasing {GB}), Royal Marine (Ire) (Raven's Pass) and G1 Investec Derby runner-up Madhmoon (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}). Magna Grecia is the only son of sire of sires Invincible Spirit to have won a Group 1 at both two and three. Invincible Spirit's current top sire sons include Kingman (GB) and leading first-season sire Cable Bay (Ire), as well as I Am Invincible (Aus) in Australia.

Magna Grecia is out of Cabaret (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), winner of the G3 Silver Flash S. at two.

Coolmore's Director of Sales David O'Loughlin said, “Magna Grecia is a top-class prospect by the sire of Kingman. He's got the pedigree and the good looks and he beat so many good horses in both the Vertem Futurity and the 2000 Guineas.”
