“A beacon for the Victorian industry, Written Tycoon’s appeal extends far beyond as he is one of only a handful of stallions to have sired two colts to win the two richest Group 1 2-year-old features on the Australian turf calendar,” General Manager Commercial James Price said.
Written Tycoon’s son Capitalist won the Golden Slipper S. while Written By was victorious in last season’s Blue Diamond S.
“Breed-shapers Redoute’s Choice and Danehill are the only other stallions in the past 25 years to do so,” Price said.
“Breed-shapers Redoute’s Choice and Danehill are the only other stallions in the past 25 years to do so.” - James Price.
Written Tycoon is also the sire of the Group 1 winners Tycoon Tara, Music Magnate, Booker and Luna Rossa. He has produced 49 stakes performers to date.
His current yearling crop sold up to $900,000 at both the Magic Millions Yearling Sale and Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, as well as topping the second day of the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
Joining Written Tycoon is his fastest ever son Rich Enuff, whose first crop of yearlings were in keen demand at the sales, while Invincible Spirit’s son Cable Bay will stand his third season in Victoria and off the back of the early success achieved by his first crop of European runners.
“It’s a fascinating and highly anticipated 12 months ahead for these two stallions with their first runners on the track in 2019,” Price said.
“With trainers expressing their delight at his progeny, we are looking forward to seeing Rich Enuff’s first crop contest the early juvenile races of the new season.” - James Price.
“Everybody has loved the physique of Rich Enuff’s stock while Cable Bay’s first three runners for two winners and a second is simply extraordinary.”
Rich Enuff’s first crop of yearlings sold up to $300,000 at the Magic Millions sale in January and the Group 1 placegetter will stand for $12,100 (inc GST).
“With trainers expressing their delight at his progeny, we are looking forward to seeing Rich Enuff’s first crop contest the early juvenile races of the new season,” Price said.
“With Rich Enuff being the fastest 3-year-old over 1200 metres at Flemington, we expect him to be a leading contender in the first-season sire race.
“With a season under his belt, Tosen Stardom has let down into a true equine marvel.” - James Price.
Tosen Stardom (Jpn), the only dual Australian Group 1 winning son of world dominator Deep Impact (Jpn) to stand at stud in Australia, will cover his second book of mares later this year.
“The sustained success of seven-time champion sire Deep Impact, who was represented by his 40th individual Group 1 winner recently, has continued to see outstanding interest in Tosen Stardom, who will remain at a fee of $19,250 (inc GST).” Price said.
“With impressive fertility, the G1 Toorak H. and G1 Emirates S. winner was one of only four Victorian first season sires to cover more than 120 mares, a true testament to his popularity.
“With a season under his belt, Tosen Stardom has let down into a true equine marvel. Breeders will see he has transformed into a tremendous equine athlete.”
“With Foxwedge’s credentials as a sire, at this price he has no peer in Victoria.” - James Price.
Group 1 winner and producer Foxwedge will cover his first Victorian book of mares since joining the farm earlier this year.
The G1 William Reid S. winning son of Fastnet Rock will stand at $16,500 (inc GST).
“This price offers incredible value. With Foxwedge’s credentials as a sire, at this price he has no peer in Victoria,” Price said.
“The risk has been removed with Foxwedge – he is the sire of Group 1 winners and breeders have the opportunity to breed their own Group 1 winner at a very affordable price.”
Foxwedge is the sire of the elite level winners Foxplay, Volpe Veloce and Urban Fox, while his current 2 and 3-year-old crops racing crops include Gerald Ryan’s Group 2 performer Villami as well Run Fox Run, who is unbeaten in three starts in South Africa.
“Cable Bay’s first European crop of runners has hit the track running, showing tremendous speed.” – James Price.
Cable Bay (Ire) has got away to a flying start in the Northern Hemisphere and he will stand his third Australian season at a fee of $13,200 (inc GST).
“Cable Bay’s first European crop of runners has hit the track running, showing tremendous speed,” Price said.
“The stunning son of Invincible Spirit has been represented by just three runners for two winners with a combined winning margin of nine lengths. His other runner finished a head second at her only start.
“He’s sure to prove tremendously popular once again and, with all mares selected for the stallion needing to pass a mating compatibility test, he is being given every chance to succeed.”
