A Colt with Stud Potential!
This colt by Written Tycoon was purchased from The Gold Coast Magic Millions for $750k and we think he look just like his dad!
Australia’s Champion Sire – Written Tycoon adds proven star quality to an exciting young roster.
The winner of the G2 Todman S. in a racing career for his owner Sheriff Iskander, who has maintained his involvement right through to the present day, Written Tycoon began his stud career in 2007 at a service fee of $8,250, but his exceptional results soon brought a meteoric rise. He now stands for a fee of $165k.
The first sire since Redoute’s Choice and Danehill in the last 25 years to sire two colts to win the two richest Group 1 2-year-old features in Australia. Capitalist took out the 2016 Golden Slipper Stakes, while Written By claimed victory in the 2018 Blue Diamond Stakes.
He is also the first stallion in 44 years to sire the winner of both the G1 Caulfield Guineas (Ole Kirk) and the G1 Thousand Guineas (Odeum).
His 52 individual stakes winners include Golden Slipper hero Capitalist, Blue Diamond winner Written By, and fellow Group 1 winners Ole Kirk, Pippie, Tycoon Tara, Music Magnate (NZ), Despatch, Tyzone, Booker, Odeum, Luna Rossa (NZ), as well as elite fillies Coolangatta and Enthaar.
Many of his sons are now forging their own careers at stud, including leading first season sire Capitalist, Rich Enuff, Winning Rupert, Written By and Ole Kirk.
Out of the mare Graciousness, she is a daughter of Street Cry. Her sire, Street Cry sits comfortably in the top 10 leading Broodmare sires in Australia. She is a half sister to Casino Prince, Tagus, Lord Of The Land and Metallurgical.
