Horse of the Year Invasor came through with his first winner when his daughter Wonder of It All scored at Ellis Park Sept. 5. Making her second start, Wonder of It All rallied to win the one-mile maiden claimer on the grass by a nose as the 9-5 favorite for owner/trainer Frederick J. Seitz (VIDEO). She was ridden by Calvin Borel.
Wonder of It All was bred in Kentucky by Sheltowee Farm, Alfonso Mazzetti, Dr. Robert J. Hunt, and Rodney Winkler. She is the first foal out of the grade III stakes-placed Maria's Mon mare Darling Daughter. Wonder of It All was bought for $30,000 by Jun Park as agent at the 2010 Keeneland September yearling sale from Three Chimneys Sales, agent.
