An explosive son of leading speed sire Written Tycoon, Written By displayed his precocity by winning his first four starts in succession highlighted by a dominant two and a half-length victory in the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Racing.com chief caller Matt Hill best summed the performance up stating; "Drew Barrier 18 of 20, started favourite, sat three wide no cover and won by over 2.5 lengths. He's put an exclamation mark on who is the best 2yo colt in Australia!"

Prepared by Grahame Begg, who also trained his sire Written Tycoon, Written By was able to overcome an outside gate in the prestigious Blue Diamond to race on pace and power away from his rivals with a blistering turn of foot in a career defining performance.

Sent to Sydney for the Golden Slipper, Written By was an easy winner of the Group II ATC Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) and then was the first colt home in the Golden Slipper behind Estijaab, Oohood and Sunlight.

A stunning chestnut bred and retained to race by Hall of Fame trainer Neville Begg and his family, Written By is very true to the Written Tycoon type and comes from the same female family as Champion sire Pins, so ticks every box in terms of pedigree, type and performance.

"Champion 2yo colts have an incredible record at stud. From Luskin Star to Canny Lad and more recently Sebring and Pierro. In fact, Written By's pedigree even features champion 2yo colts and successful sires Rory's Jester, Marscay and Vain," said Neville Begg.

"Widden have enjoyed unrivalled success in recent years launching the careers of successful stallions such as Sebring, Northern Meteor, Stratum, Nicconi, Star Witness and Zoustar, that have all been wonderfully successful sires," said Antony Thompson.

"Physically, Written By is an awesome individual. Strong, imposing and perfectly built for the Australian conditions & our commercial market. We firmly believe this horse has all the attributes to add to our current sires' success and we thank Neville and the Begg family for entrusting us to fulfil his next career as a stallion. They have been an absolute pleasure to deal with.

"Not since Pierro in 2013, has an Australian Group I winning 2YO retired to stud that is completely free of Danehill blood. We feel Written By presents as a beautiful outcross to the many Danehill/Danzig line mares in this country."

Written By stood his first season at a fee of $24,750 inc GST.

The fillies pedigree is one of the exciting things about her and doing a bit of research prior to the sale enabled me I think to put the percentages into our favour to find a potential Black type horse. WRITTEN BY was a stallion that we were keen on to be buying into this year in his first crop and to be perfectly honest why wouldn’t you be! This filly, is by clearly the Champion 2YO of his generation in WRITTEN BY whose sire WRITTEN TYCOON is now a Champion stallion in his own right. WRITTEN BY won 6 of his first 7 starts including the GROUP 1 Blue Diamond, GROUP 3 Blue Diamond Prelude for Colts and Geldings, GROUP 3 Pago Pago, GROUP 3 Blue Sapphire Stakes and was the first Colt home in the GROUP 1 Golden Slipper running 4th to Estijaab beaten home only 1.8 lengths! The fillies Dam is the Redoute’s Choice Mare Peltier and Redoute’s Choice Mares, when matched to WRITTEN BY’S Sire WRITTEN TYCOON have on 35 occasions produced 27 winners and a Stakes winner in TELEPLAY so it is abundantly clear that the cross works! The other extremely important point to note is that the first 4 dams have produced 6 Stakes horses, COME FLY WITH ME, SIZZLEFLY, MARITESS, FLYING JESS, BELDARRA and DINKY FLYER (NZ) and THEY ARE ALL FILLIES!!. There is not a lot more that you need to know when you are purchasing a filly when the family has a proven history of producing Stakes fillies combined with the knowledge that the cross works and she is by a Champion 2YO of his generation combined with his Sire being a Champion stallion today. It all adds up to the relevant point that we have a lot in our favour and clearly we are ahead of the game and have the percentages placed in our favour to keep that tradition going, of producing a stakes filly yet again in a family that is so heavily aligned to producing these black type fillies!! We are therefore very excited to have purchased a filly that ticks ALL of the boxes on type, conformation and pedigree and is a filly that I can only encourage participation in!

*As a bonus and very important is that this fillies pedigree is a 20/20 match on the breeding search engine Goldmine which matches extremely close to GROUP 1 Winners LUNA ROSSA, BOOKER, CAPITALIST, MUSIC MAGNATE, as well as the GROUP performed gallopers DIRTY WORK, TELEPLAY, COOLANGATTA, RICH HIPS, FINANCE TYCOON, VIBRANT ROUGE, WRITTEN BEAUTY, WRITTEN DASH etc so we know the cross works at the elite level!

It is indeed exciting to have purchased a filly that is such an athletic type with the looks to match with a terrific hind quarter and girth, backed up with an outstanding pedigree as I have detailed and goes to one of the best trainers in Australia in Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr who United Syndications have been associated with for now 21 years and we have enjoyed much success with our horses including Black type performers LA BELLA DAME, LE BONSIR, DAMSELFLY, LOVEYAMADLY, ONPICALO, ROYAL CHARADES, ROYAL SNITZEL, IMMORTAL LOVE etc. We pride ourselves on the service that we offer to everyone, which incorporates breaking in videos, pre training videos and track work videos. This is a service that we are very proud of and well renowned for, and allows all owners to enjoy and watch the progression of their horse from the beginning at the breakers, to all of the way through to then hopefully the winners circle in the future!
