Reminiscing about his racing career, the explosive son of Written Tycoon was the most dominant sprinter in Australia during his three-year-old spring campaign.
Rich Enuff captured three consecutive black type races, kicking off with a dominant two and a quarter length romp in the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley, in what was a second outside multiple Group 1 winner Miss Andretti’s track record.
At his very next outing, the imposing colt stamped his class by saluting in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington beating Group 1 winners Brazen Beau, Wandjina and Go Indy Go, stopping the clock at 1:08.13 – the fastest a three-year-old colt has run down the Flemington straight six this century.
Next out in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield, the stunning colt produced arguably one of his most impressive performance, trouncing his rivals by three lengths, once again leaving Wandjina in his wake, as well as future G1 winner Awesome Rock.
Based on his outstanding three-streak of stakes victories, Rich Enuff started favourite in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and after experiencing a torrid run in transit, the colt had the audacity to finish a narrow second behind Shooting To Win, with Wandjina in third and the previous season’s Group 1 JJ Atkins winner Almalad back in the field.
Defeating a host of Group 1 winners throughout his career, Rich Enuff’s racetrack performances give breeders the confidence knowing that the son of Written Tycoon is a Group 1 class horse, and with victories over stakes-producing young sires Brazen Beau and Wandjina in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes, it further cements the colt’s ability, mirroring that of not only his sire, but his grandsire Iglesia as well.
