#REWRITINGHISTORY

While Written Tycoon has been a consistent top ten stallion for many years, 2020 has been a phenomenal year for the multiple Champion Victorian Stallion.

The year kicked off in the best possible manner with his highest ever priced yearling recorded, a filly out of Karuta Queen realising $1.5m at the Magic Millions yearling sale to clients of Sheamus Mills Bloodstock. As the highest priced filly to sell at the sale since 2018, and the third highest price of the 2020 sale, she has now been named Queen Of The Green in the stable of Tony and Calvin McEvoy.

Flashy mare Pippie kicked off the year in fine style, winning the G1 Oakleigh Plate to become the eighth individual winner for her sire before the Edmond’s Racing-trained Tyzone captured the G1 Stradbroke Handicap to become his ninth.

The start of the new racing season saw Pippie resume with her second elite level score, defeating a high class field including G1 winners Trekking, Bella Vella and Hey Doc in the Moir Stakes to become the first dual G1 winner for Written Tycoon.

The Spring carnival in both Sydney and Melbourne saw the latest rising stars for Written Tycoon when his juvenile stakes winner Ole Kirk recorded back to back G1 wins in the Golden Rose and Caulfield Guineas to set himself up as one of the most in-demand stallion prospects in the country.

Not be out shone, 3yo filly Odeum went within a whisker of her own G1 double, winning the Thousand Guineas against her own age before a narrow second in the Empire Rose Stakes against the older mares.

Starting off the new racing season in such impressive fashion taking his overall G1 tally to 11, Written Tycoon’s number of individual stakes winners this season has already bettered any previous season, further highlighting that the best is yet to come.

PROGENY

With 11 individual G1 winners to his credit, two of which; Ole Kirk and Pippie, became dual G1 winners in 2020, Written Tycoon’s rise to prominence has been via his consistent stakes winning stock.

The likes of 2018 G1 Blue Diamond Stakes winner and highest 2YO Timeform Rated colt of his season in Written By, the flashy, dual G1-winning speedster Pippie, and G1 Golden Slipper and Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Capitalist, whose first crop juveniles have hit the ground running.

The commencement of the 2020/2021 racing season couldn’t have started in a better way for the Champion Victorian Sire with his star 3yo colt Ole Kirk winning the G1 Golden Rose followed by the G1 Caulfield Guineas at his very next start, both highly sought after stallion-making races within the Australian breeding industry.

Not to be outdone, 3yo filly Odeum captured the G1 Thousand Guineas just 40 mins prior to Ole Kirk’s success  at Caulfield to highlight herself as one of the best of her generation, cementing that at her next start when going down by the barest of margins to the older horses in the G1 Empire Rose Stakes when finishing second.

Outstanding 4yo sprinter Dirty Work has highlighted his class as a future stallion prospect winning the G2 Schillaci Stakes before adding a third placing in the G1 Manikato Stakes at his next start, while Written Tycoon’s record breaking start to the season has seen progeny earnings increase to over $83 million underlined by his 40 individual stakes winners.

PEDIGREE

The only son of Last Tycoon’s (Try My Best) Iglesia at stud, and out of a Kenmare (Kalamoun) mare, an element of Written Tycoon’s success must be credited to providing breeders with an outcross that suits the majority of pedigrees.

With the Australian broodmare band being saturated with Danehill blood, Written Tycoon has achieved success from a diverse range of dam lines, not being restricted to suiting a particular nick.

Written Tycoon has always recorded exceptional fertility and in the past few seasons has covered some of the best pedigreed and performed young mares in the country, indicating that while he has proven extremely success with his progeny on the track, the best is yet to come…

       

PERFORMANCE

Written Tycoon won on debut at Randwick at two for trainer Grahame Begg, coming from fifth on the turn to score by 2.25 lengths, running the 1100m in 1:04.25. It took a good youngster to beat him next start when he was second to Champion 2YO filly Fashions Afield over 1200m at headquarters, with the likes of subsequent Golden Slipper winner Stratum, Manton and Media in his wake.

He scored his biggest win at his third start when he had a length to spare over Domesday and with Flying Pegasus, Dr Green and Jet Spur next in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes at Rosehill, a race won by the likes of Exceed And Excel, Smart Missile and Pierro. Once again he came from third at the turn to run 1:11.98 for the 1200m on a dead track.

At three Written Tycoon resumed in the Group 2 San Domenico Stakes over 1000m at Randwick, coming from well back to be runner-up to Media and with subsequent Oakleigh Plate winner Snitzel in third and Stratum fourth in a time of 57.47. He was also second in the Listed Satellite Stakes over 1100m. He retired with two wins and three seconds from 11 starts for earnings of $289,325.
