EXCITING colt by CHAMPION 2YO sire
Exciting colt by Champion Two-year-old Sire and Group 1 producer Written Tycoon, out of the Flying Spur winning half-sister to Redoute’s Choice’s Listed winner Tranquility.
The dam of one foal to race, the now three-year-old filly is the extremely talented, Group 2 winner Booker, the full-sister to this colt who was also sold by Mill Park.
From an impressive black type family that includes the dual Group 1 winner Umrum, as well as the HK-Group 1 winner Sun Jewellery, this colt’s full sister has shown she is more than capable of capturing a Group 1 win of her own, having defeated Shoals and Catchy in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude – with the runner up going on to claim the Group 1 Myer Classic, and the third horse already the winner of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
As the sire of Capitalist, the most recent winner of the Magic Millions 2YO Classic – Group 1 Golden Slipper double, Written Tycoon has shown time and time again that he has the ability to not only produce fast, precious juveniles, but horses that train on.
Mares by Flying Spur have supplied seven Group 1 winners including the four-time Group 1 winner Preferment, Golden Slipper winner and successful Group 1-producing sire Sebring, the dual Group 1-winning South African sprinter and now Australian-based sire Delago Deluxe, and this season’s Cantala Stakes winner Shillelagh.
With 10 winners from just 14 runners from the Written Tycoon x Flying Spur cross, the best performer to date is in fact Booker, hence the excitement is high to offer this colt at the sale.
