Written Tycoon (below) recorded a two state double on Thursday, with the highly rated pair of Oristana and It Is Written scoring at Gosford and Seymour respectively.
Trained by former leading jockey, Kevin Moses, Oristana has now put together two wins from three outings and led throughout to score comfortably over 1000m on NSW’s Central Coast.
Oristana’s only ‘miss’ to date was when she missed the kick and the flashy 4YO produced a bold front running performance at Gosford to score comfortably: much to the delight of favourite backers and her applicably named owner/breeder – Realrosy Pty Ltd.
Out of the Marwina mare, Valdiola, Oristana is linebred to both Marscay and Vain (no wonder she has plenty of toe!).
The near black, It Is Written, did plenty to enhance his reputation with a solid effort at Seymour: sitting just off the pace before zooming away to a comfortable two and a half panel victory over 1000m.
Also sent out favourite, the Robbie Griffiths trained flyer was on the sidelines for four months before Friday’s romp and now has three wins and two seconds to his name.
A Moonee Valley winner in February, It Is Written clearly handles firmer tracks and could easily make his presence felt during the summer.
Bred by River Ridge Stud in South Australia, It Is Written is out of the Danehill Dancer mare Winning Team and was sold to Griffiths for $45,000 at the 2010 Adelaide Magic Millions.
