The most popular stallion in Australia right now would have to be the magnificent liver-chestnut son of Iglesia, Written Tycoon (WT) who continued his golden run of late with another string of winners over the weekend, culminating in the all-important Group One victory which had previously eluded him.
There is no greater achievement for a commercial stallion and stud farm than victory in the World’s best 2yo race, The Golden Slipper, and on Saturday at Rosehill Gardens, Capitalist made this a reality for his sire and our stud.
Capitalist achieved the very rare Magic Millions/Slipper double which has never been achieved by a colt before, but more importantly for Woodside he became WT’s first Group One winner.
We would like to congratulate all of the connections of Capitalist including but not limited to: Peter and Paul Snowden and their racing manager Jackson Beirs, Newgate Farm, James Harron Bloodstock and of course Blake Shinn for his brilliant ride. We would like to make a special mention of the most accomplished breeder Jan Clark and her managers Mark and Sarah McCann at Daandine Stud in Queensland who not only bred Capitalist, but also bred his sire Written Tycoon –what a story!
