With the Flemington Cup Carnival over for another year, it’s great to reflect on the week that was and take stock of the results.
Cup day saw the Mick Price Racing-trained Teleplay continue her consistent form and become the newest stakes winner for her sire Written Tycoon.
After a good getaway from the gates, jockey Michael Dee had Teleplay settled in a midfield position, although she was still quite a few lengths from the leaders.
Starting to make her run 400m from home, the mare still had many lengths to make up, but a confident ride from Dee saw Teleplay charge towards the leaders, taking the win narrowly in the shadows of the post.
“I was quietly confident coming here today, especially with the wet conditions,” said Dee, who had ridden Teleplay to success in the past.
A graduate of Baystone Farm’s Inglis Premier Yearling Sale draft, Teleplay was secured for $85,000, and with three wins from just six starts and just shy of $200,000 in earnings as well as having a black type win alongside her name, owners Dynamic Syndications have a valuable commodity on their hands.
Written Tycoon’s barn mate Tosen Stardom, a winner of the G1 Emirates Stakes during the 2017 Flemington Carnival has had a change of focus 12 months on and is doing an exceptional job in the covering shed.
With fantastic fertility and as the season comes to a close, the dual G1-winning son of Deep Impact is still accepting bookings. Broodmare owners struggling with last ditch efforts to get their mare in foal you could not be in better hands than to visit Tosen Stardom.
