Sire: Written Tycoon
Dam: Miss Ballantine
Foaled: Aug 12, 2020
This filly was purchased at the recent Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale from the Coolmore draft and her temperament is as just as sweet as she looks!
Sired by Written Tycoon, he really needs no introduction but I’ll give you one anyway! Written Tycoon now stands at the beautiful farm of Yulong where he is treated like a king and why shouldn’t he with these following stats! He was the first stallion in 44 years to sire the winner of both the Group One Caulfield Guineas (Ole Kirk) and the Group One Thousand Guineas (Odeum). He is the first sire since Redoute’s Choice and Danehill in the last 25 years to sire two colts to win the two richest Group One 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.
Top progeny sired by Written Tycoon include Pippi, Tycoon Tara, Music Magnate, Written By, Capitalist, Super Cash, Rich Enuff, Winning Rupert and the list goes on and on! Written Tycoon stands for $165,000 so we think we have bought exceptional value with this filly. Keep reading and you will see why below..
Apart from her pedigree, conformation and looks, another reason we are excited about this filly is because we think the cross of sire and dam will be exciting as she has a full brother who has already begun his racing career with a very impressive jumpout at Warwick Farm just in December last year.

To note, Snitcat who placed second in the trial had already had three race starts prior to this trial so he had experience on his side, he also placed 3rd in the recent Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO race!
O’Tycoon is trained by Bjorn Baker and after this trial the colt was spelled as he went shin sore, but he certainly looks an exciting prospect in the future.
Out of the Redoute’s Choice mare Miss Ballantine, she was a four time winner of distances from 1300m to 1550m. She retired from racing with a prize purse of just under $196,000. Only a new mare to the barn, this filly is her second foal. Her first being O’Tycoon. Also to note down the dam’s pedigree is Alverta and Aerobatics.
We purchased this filly in partnership with Australian Bloodstock who also have a fine eye for bloodstock!
This filly is now at Salomina Lodge in Wyong where she will have a short spell before beginning her breaking in and education process. She will then spell, pre train, spell, pre train at Salomina Lodge and then make her way to our Cranbourne stables where Mick and Michael will assess her and map out a plan for her.
This filly was purchase for $450,000. Purchase includes purchase of the horse, pre sale vetting (x-rays and scope), 12 months insurance, Magic Millions Race Series, post sale scope, video, transport, breaking in and education, one months agistment and GST.
