You sometimes forget just what a good stallion, Written Tycoon is. The first Victorian based stallion in over a decade to win a national title, he was re-located last spring to helm the new Eliza Park Queensland operation, amid considerable fanfare.
But we all sometimes need a reminder and WT has definitely come to the party this week, kicking off with the debut victory at Doomben by Robert Heathcote’s Smasher on Wednesday.
It was Written Tycoon’s only runner for the day and he went unrepresented on Thursday.
On Friday, he had just the sole runner: Chris Waller’s sprinter, Writteninthestars (below), who was in the lucky last at Canterbury. She won … her second on the trot in town.
Today Written Tycoon had three runners: It Is Written – trained by Robbie Griffiths and whose ownership includes the Dirty Dozen – finished six lengths off the pace but had won and run a head second at Moonee Valley in December; then there was Written Eleison, Kim Craft’s rapidly improving filly, who won well on the Gold Coast just before Xmas and has since produced a third at Doomben (beaten a neck) and a third at Eagle Farm today.
But star of the day was clearly David Jolly’s Ambrosia who got up in a thriller Morphettville and can now boast three wins and two placings from just seven outings.
So, in summary, that’s five runners, three city winners and a city third since Wednesday.
Written Tycoon … he’ll do me.
