First foal for Written By
The Champion 2YO Colt of his generation and a dominant winner of the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes, Written Tycoon’s brilliant son Written By has produced his first foal with the arrival of a gorgeous chestnut filly at Torryburn Stud.
Born on July 30, the filly is the third foal from Torryburn Stud’s unraced homebred Redoute’s Choice mare Suziqueue, a daughter of US Black Type performer Suzy Smart from the family of Group I winner Minstrella.
“She is a great foal, the spitting image of her Dad,” said Brett Cornish of Torryburn Stud.
Photographer Joan Faras was equally impressed with the youngster.
“She is a lovely filly,” Faras reported.
“You won’t see a better foal that is not even 24 hours old. She has great strength and athleticism, overall a quality filly.
“I have photographed Written By and I just love him.”
The first foal from Suziqueue, a colt by another Written Tycoon stallion in Winning Rupert, sold for $180,000 at Inglis Classic in 2020 indicating this lovely mare may be well suited to the Written Tycoon line sires.
True to the Written Tycoon type, Written By was a fast and natural two year-old, bred by renowned trainer Neville Begg and his family and trained throughout his career by his son Grahame
Completely free of Danehill blood, Written By has much to like in his pedigree making him a very appealing option for a myriad of mares.
Diverse bloodlines, coupled with his Group I race performance and sprinter’s physique made Written By a popular choice for breeders last spring covering 148 mares.
He stands this spring at Widden Stud at a fee of $22,000.
