The good folk at Thoroughbred Breeders Victoria have pointed out that Written Tycoon will become the first Victorian-based Champion First Season Sire since Flying Spur in 1999/2000.
That’s pretty good company given that Flying Spur has subsequently gone on to produce over 720 winners – 83 of them stakes winners, including Golden Slipper winner Forensics and the brilliant Magnus (pictured below).
With his first crop topping the 2011 Inglis Sydney Classic, Magnus has gotten off to a flying start on his own and it wouldn’t surprise if he kept the First Season Sires’ belt in Victoria for another season.
