WOODSIDE Park Stud’s banner stallion Written Tycoon has just written his own major piece of Australian racing history.
Thanks to the extraordinary run of success his progeny have had on racetracks all over the country in recent months he has earned a place in the record books as the highest stakes money earning stallion in Victorian history.
Australian based racehorses by Written Tycoon have now amassed more than $10 MILLION in prize money. This eclipses the previous record of $7.3 MILLION set by Bel Esprit.
Adding to this notable feat, Written Tycoon is also now the sire of the world’s highest ever stakes winning two-year-old - Capitalist. The Golden Slipper and Magic Millions winner has so far earned $3,508,000 after winning four of his five starts.
The previous record of $3.1 MILLION was held by the Gai WaterhousetrainedDance Hero and was set back in 2003-2004.
"When we were able to secure Written Tycoon, we had no idea that in a few short years he would become one of the most commercial stallions in the country, said Woodside’s Bloodstock and Sales Manager Matt Tillett.
