Double You Tee, the cleverly named two-year-old colt by Written Tycoon is making his promising debut this weekend at Devonport in Tasmania.

Trained by the leading Tasmanian stables of John Blacker, he believes the eye-catching youngster has an exciting future.

“He is a very nice colt. Being a big, tall, long horse, he looks like a stayer, but he has a bit of wheel about him which is very promising.”
Being suitably impressed at first sight at the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale, Blacker purchased last year’s sale topper for $115,000. A standout, he holds the record for the highest-priced yearling sold at the Launceston sale.
Bred by the respected Armidale Stud, he is from the well-bred mare Kandy Korn, a half sister to Baby Corn. Her dam Sweet Corn was the Group 3 winner of the VRC Matriarch Stakes.
Double You Tee has had two trials under his belt, and he is ready to begin his racetrack career.
“His trial last week was over a short, sharp half mile which probably doesn’t suit him, so the 1000m maiden tomorrow will be better. He still ran on for second, and they went pretty slick as they do over the short trips.” Blacker said.

“I would be tickled pink if he runs a good top four.”
“We won’t see the best of him tomorrow, and as long as he pulls up well, he will run in the Tasmanian Sires Produce. You will see a different horse in three weeks, over 1400m in Launceston.”
Double You Too will then head to the paddock to mature and develop, and under the expert and patient eye of Blacker, he will get every chance to fulfil his potential on the racetrack.
With a large team heading to the Devonport track, we wish JKB Racing and all the owners, I M Halliday, J R Morton, M W Smith & Nova Clause (Mgr: P W Smith) the best of luck with Double You Tee.
Woodside Park Stud hopes to see him venturing over to race in Victoria in the near future.
