In an exceptional breeding career that continues to climb, Champion Victorian Stallion, Written Tycoon has now produced five individual G1 gallopers, this year adding the tough and talented Blue Diamond Stakes winner, Written By to his record.
Written Tycoon’s pre-potency to stamp his foals in the image of himself, with the exceptional ability to produce outstanding commercial types, ensure his progeny are highly sort after by the educated and astute buying bench at all major sales.
“Woodside Park Stud is proud to support and grow the Victorian breeding industry, and being passionately Victorian owned, they will ensure that Written Tycoon remains in Victoria for the rest of his breeding career,” Price said.
With tremendous fertility and libido, million-dollar yearlings, phenomenal 73% winners to runners and producing five individual G1 champions, Written Tycoon can conclusively demand his 2018 fee of $110,000 inc. GST.
Written Tycoon is the sire of champion two-year-olds including the 2016 Golden Slipper winner, Capitalist, Australia’s Champion 2YO and the 2018 Blue Diamond winner, Written By, the likely Australian Champion 2YO Colt.

A son of Last Tycoon’s (Try My Best) Iglesia 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, he 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 Australasia.
Written Tycoon won on debut at Randwick as a 2YO 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 outstanding 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 G2 Silver Slipper Stakes at Rosehill. Once again he came from third at the turn to run 1:11.98 for the 1200m on a dead track.
As a 3YO Written Tycoon resumed in the G2 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 57.47. He was also second in the Listed Satellite Stakes over 1100m. He retired with two wins and three seconds in 11 starts for earnings of $289,325.
