Second Winner for Written By
Written By posted his second winner at Ipswich on Wednesday when Sunday Mail scored an easy victory as favourite.
Trained by Lee Freedman, Sunday Mail was gelded following an unplaced debut last year when he did plenty wrong and was resuming over 800m. Punters are a forgiving lot, and Sunday Mail again went off an odd-on favourite delivering a happy result for his large group of owners.
Boris Thornton led at every call on the striking chestnut to win by a length.

The My Racehorse colour-bearer was a $150,000 purchase for his trainer from the Widden Stud draft at the 2022 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. He is the third winner from four to race out of the stakes-placed Exceed And Excel mare Sunday Rose.
A half-sister to Group II-placed Divine Moon, and dual Group III-placed Moonboat, Sunday Rose hails from the family of Canny Lad and Canny Lass.
Sunday Rose has a yearling brother to Sunday Mail. She missed to Russian Camelot (IRE) in 2021 and was covered by Portland Sky in September.
Sunday Mail is the second winner for Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes winner Written By after the Group III BRC BJ McLachlan Stakes winner The Novelist, while Gangitano finished third in the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes at Caulfield.
