14/3/2018 Written By to run in Pago Pago

Stakes Blue Diamond Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) winner and leading Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) hope Written By (Written Tycoon) will be a surprise runner in the Pago Pago Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday after trainer Grahame Begg said he is not prepared to run him in a barrier trial on the steeple grass at Randwick. The colt had been scheduled to have his final Slipper tune-up on Tuesday in one of two barrier trials on the Kensington track. Rain put paid to those trials and they have been moved to Thursday on the different surface. "With the Sydney fickle weather coming into play, the trials were moved from the Kensington track to the steeple grass which is a totally unacceptable surface. The decision has been made for Written By to take his place in the Pago Pago Stakes this Saturday," Begg said
