With the completion of the 2019/2020 racing season, Woodside Park Stud’s Rich Enuff ended the season with seven individual winners, more than any other active Victorian first season sire currently standing in the state.
Headlined by his stunning daughter Plutocrat, who was not only his first winner, and first stakes placed performer, but showed her outstanding ability to capture Eagle Farm’s Listed Tattersall’s Club Stakes (1400m).
12 of his first crop runners finished in the top three, with the general feeling from many that they breed will be better at three, and that was the case with Rich Enuff himself, winning three consecutive stakes races in the Spring of his 3YO season beating the likes of Brazen Beau and Wandjina before a narrow second in the G1 Caulfield Guineas to Shooting To Win, once again beating home Wandjina.
Comparisons with his very own sire Written Tycoon, highlights what a significant start to his stallion career Rich Enuff has made.
Achieving more first crop winners, and even a stakes winner – bettering Written Tycoon’s first crop, the future is very exciting for everyone who has supported him, while making note that Rich Enuff’s first crop tally equalled or bettered the likes of Brazen Beau, Pierro, Lonhro, Dubawi, Magnus, Street Boss, Manhattan Rain, Starspangledbanner and Needs Further with their Australian first crop runners.
Covering an average of 120 mares in each of his initial four seasons at stud so far, the upcoming season is sure to see breeders once gain line up to support Written Tycoon’s fastest 3YO colt, and we look forward to further discussing mating plans with breeders.
One such breeder who has thrown her support behind Rich Enuff, is highly respected pedigree analyst and journalist Kristen Manning.
“I have been happy to recommend Rich Enuff to my clients,” stated Manning.
“I am impressed not only by the horse, but also by the depth of his pedigree. He is an easy stallion to match up and I am delighted with my own colt by him, so much so that my mare is paying a return visit this spring.”
Not only is the success of Rich Enuff a great result for the farm, but his sire Written Tycoon was the leading Victorian-based sire with over $10m in progeny earnings from 164 individual winners, placing him third behind Snitzel and I Am Invincible on winners.
