First season sire, WRITTEN TYCOON, has gotten off to tremendous start with his first three 2YOs all winning official barrier trials this week.
The Lee Freedman trained Masthead (ex. Redoute’s Choice mare Balsamico) got the ball rolling on Monday morning at Cranbourne, winning his heat in 48.84 seconds – the quickest 2YO trial of the day.
Meanwhile, north of the Murray, Trump (ex. Black Minnaloushe mare Queenie) – a spitting image of his sire – ran the second fastest Randwick trial, heralding a big future for the David Payne trained colt who is now on target for the Listed Breeders’ Plate at Randwick on 2 October.
Not to be left out of the mix, Paul Perry’s Some Boy (ex. General Nediym mare Paris Storm) scooted away to victory in the official 2YO barrier trials at Newcastle earlier today.
What’s more, three Written Tycoon youngsters – all designed for the Magic Millions Horses in Training Sale next month – ran sub 11 second breeze ups on the Gold Coast on Tuesday.
A talented and precocious 2YO in his own right, Written Tycoon has been popular since arriving at Eliza Park in 2007, covering 323 mares and is scheduled for another three figure book this spring.
Written Tycoon stands the 2010 season at a fee of $6,600 and, given the run of bookings since Monday, limited numbers remain.
