Winning on debut as a juvenile for trainer Graeme Begg, WRITTEN TYCOON scored his biggest victory in the G2 Silver Slipper Stakes, beating the likes of DOMESDAY, FLYING PEGASUS and JET SPUR to victory. In his Classic year, WRITTEN TYCOON was runner-up to MEDIA in the G2 San Domenico S., with SNITZEL third and STRATUM 4th.

At stud, WRITTEN TYCOON is the sire of the 2018 G1 Blue Diamond S. winner WRITTEN BY as well as CAPITALIST, the G1 Golden Slipper winner whose progeny have been well received at his first Yearling sales this year, selling to $600K on the Gold Coast.
This year’s G1 Oakleigh Plate was won by PIPPIE, a daughter of WRITTEN TYCOON who emulated the feat of another daughter of WRITTEN TYCOON in BOOKER, who won the race in 2019.

Crowned the Leading Australian First Season sire in 2010-11 and then Leading Australian Sire of 2YO’s in 2015-16, WRITTEN TYCOON now has 58 Stakes winners including 8 G1 winners to his name (no sex bias with four male and four female), boasting an impressive 73% runners-winners ratio.

BASHFUL GIRL is the Group winning dam of this gelding (MRC Eclipse S.[G3]). The producer of 3 winners at stud, she is also half-sister to STRIKELINE (MVRC Ian McEwan Trohpy [G3]) and a full sister to jumps Champion Bashboy (18 wins). Second dam STRIKE HIGH is also a Stakes winner (VATC Hopetoun H. [L]) but her real claim to fame is as the granddam of 2020 Champion Racehorse and Champion Sprinter NATURE STRIP (Victoria Racing Club S.[G1]; MRVC A.J.Moir S.[G1]; ATC T.J. Smith S.[G1]; Galaxy H.[G1]).
