WHO IS NEXT – ROWSTHORN’S SIRE SELECTION HISTORY SET TO REPEAT

In 2013, when Mark Rowsthorn took control of Woodside Park Stud from his father, just a month into the job one of his first major decisions was to purchase into the then promising young sire Written Tycoon.

ENUFF IS ENOUGH

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.
