In 12 starts, Invasor posted 11 wins, including six consecutive grade 1 victories, earning over $7.8 million. A 5-year-old son of Candy Stripes, Invasor won the 2005 Triple Crown in Uruguay and was named Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male in that country. After being privately purchased by Shadwell in 2006, Invasor dominated the North American racing world with victories in the Whitney Handicap (gr. I), Pimlico Special (gr. I), and Suburban Handicap (gr. I). His championship season culminated with a thrilling victory in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) at Churchill Downs in November. He was voted the Eclipse Awards as Horse of the Year and Champion Older Male.

His 2007 campaign started with a two-length win in the Donn Handicap (gr. I) under a hand ride. The champion's major objective was the world's richest race, the $6 million Dubai World Cup. Invasor wore down his rivals to win by nearly two lengths.
