11/11/2019 30 for Written Tycoon

The lightly-raced Banquo (3 c ex Noondie by Flying Spur) rewarded connections' patience with a breakthrough stakes victory and 30th for his sire Written Tycoon (Iglesia) in the World Horse Racing Springtime Stakes (Listed, 1400m) at Flemington. Trained by Danny O’Brien, the $600,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale graduate, who is a brother to Group 1-winning sprinter Booker, defeated Sophia’s Choice (Fastnet Rock) by a length, with a head back to Regimental Band (I Am Invincible) in third. The colt, who is owned by a powerful New Zealand syndicate that includes agent Bruce Perry, Garry and Mark Chittick of Waikato Stud, Leb Petangna and Jomara Bloodstock, joins the likes of Capitalist, Written By and Music Magnate as stakes winners for the Woodside Park Stud-based Written Tycoon.
He stands for a fee of $110,000 (inc GST).
