Written Tycoon has 14 yearlings up for grabs at next month’s Adelaide Magic Millions and, given the impressive victory of Tycoon Heights over 1100m at Morphettville on Saturday, you can rest assured the entire cast will spend plenty of time outside the box.
The winning margin for Tycoon Heights might not have been substantial but it was the style of the performance that would have had trainer Andrew Dillon mapping out an ambitious program for his speedy 4YO.
Bred and raced by Campolina Pty Ltd, Tycoon Heights has now raced on five occasions for three wins and he appears to have shaken off the rust when finishing midfield on resuming at Werribee on 27 January.
A Champion Australian First Season Sire, Written Tycoon has popped up with winners all over the shop in recent months – the unbeaten 2YO stakes winner, Grand Tycoon, Smasher, Write Cheek, Written Eleison, It Is Written and co., but in terms of his Magic Millions ‘14’, his Adelaide city winners include Alezan Thunder, Tykook and Ambrosia, making him very much the flavor in South Australia’s capital.
PS. For those of you that can’t wait, keep in mind that Written Tycoon also has 12 entered for the Melbourne Premier, including a half brother to 2012 Flemington spring carnival stakes winner, Philippi, the second foal of a winning half sister to multiple stakes winner Kenconcarne, the second foal of a half sister to Group One winner Bulla Borghese, plus halfs to Flemington stakes runners up, Adaptor and Kid Kobe.
