Arrowfield Commits Stellar Mares to Written Tycoon
Standing at Arrowfield Stud in association with Woodside Park Stud, leading stallion Written Tycoon has had 35 quality Arrowfield mares confirmed for his 2020 book. They are a stellar group, headed by Champion 3YO Filly Shoals (by Fastnet Rock) and her dam The Broken Shore (by Hussonet), Gr2 winner Noire (by Foxwedge), 2YO Group winners Teaspoon (by Snitzel) & Honesty Prevails (by Redoute’s Choice; dam of this year’s $1.9 million Deep Impact colt), Gr3 & multiple Listed stakes winner Angel Of Mercy (by Hussonet) and Rationality (by Flying Spur; sister of Gr1 winner Mentality & dam of Group-placed 2YO winner Bartley). It didn’t take Written Tycoon long to underline Arrowfield’s enthusiasm with his second Gr1 winner this season, and the ninth of his career when Tyzone nabbed Saturday’s Gr1 BRC Stradbroke Handicap (1400m). Written Tycoon is closing on his third $10 million domestic season, and his tally of 8 individual stakes-winners equals his career-best record of 2017/18. Tyzone joins record-breaking Gr1 Oakleigh Plate winner Pippie and Gold Coast & Gosford Guineas winner Hightail at the head of Written Tycoon’s 151 Australian winners of 237 races in 2019/20. Those statistics put Written Tycoon secondon the current General Sires’ Premiership by wins and third by winners and, for the fifth consecutive season, he is holding a Top 10 spot by prizemoney.
