Bred on the exact same cross that has given us this season’s dual Group 1-winning colt Ole Kirk, the winner of the stallion-making Golden Rose and Caulfield Guineas, this Written Tycoon colt is the second foal of the three-time-winning Bel Esprit mare Bel Selene, a half-sister to the five-time Group 1 winner Mummify, and to the dams of Group 3 winners Ottoman and Take Pride as well as the dual Listed winner Isaurian.
Bel Esprit as a broodmare sire has been represented by 25 stakes performers, which not only includes this season’s equal highest Timeform Rated, Australian bred 3yo colt Ole Kirk, but the Hong Kong Horse of the Year and eight time Group 1 winner Beauty Generation as well as the New Zealand One Thousand Guineas winner Costa Viva, while the exact Written Tycoon x Bel Esprit cross has 13 winners from 16 runners.
