Exciting young sire I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) cracked $3 million in season earnings on Wednesday with a pair of slick winners in Desert Man and Illustrious Lad.

The Gillian Heinrich trained two year-old colt Desert Man did a demolition job on a hapless field of overmatched juveniles at the Gold Coast.

Sent out favourite he gave them all a galloping lesson, clearing out to win the 1200 metre maiden by nearly six lengths at his second start.

$160,000 Magic Millions purchase, Desert Man is a full brother to ill-fated filly I Am Snippety, who won the Wellington Boot and winning over $100,000 before her tragic death after just seven starts.

Desert Man is the third winner for Snippety Day, who is due to foal again to I Am Invincible this spring.

Desert Man is the tenth two year-old winner this season for I Am Invincible, who is equal with Not a Single Doubt on the two year-old sires by winners list behind only Snitzel (13) and Exceed and Excel (12).

Making it a double for I Am Invincible was speedy three year-old gelding Illustrious Lad, who posted his third when saluting at Geelong for Peter Gelagotis.

I Am Invincible will cover a full book of mares this season at his increased service fee of $55,000, while his dual Gr. I winning son Brazen Beau, has been set at $44,000 for his debut season at Darley.
