Brilliant Sprint Winners For Written Tycoon

Woodside Park Stud’s Written Tycoon sired his seventh individual Group 1 winner when the Tony McEvoy-trained Despatch completed his rapid rise to the top grade in the $750,000 Goodwood at Morphettville on Saturday.

Despatch (Written Tycoon x Zoccoletta by Fasliyev) made it four wins in succession, taking his record to eight wins from only 12 starts and earnings of $954,105.

Despatch joins Golden Slipper Stakes winner Capitalist, Music Magnate, Booker and Written By among the G1 winners by Written Tycoon.

Bred by Paul Dillon, Despatch was originally sold for $40,000 through the Woodside Park Stud draft at the 2015 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale where he was secured by Baramul Stud manager Paul Thompson and his wife Amanda.

He was then prepared by the Baramul Stud team and sold for $195,000 at the 2016 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale to McEvoy Mitchell Racing.

His late dam Zoccoletta, a three-time winner and dam of two other winners, died in 2015. She was a daughter of the G3 winner Vita (Thunder Gulch) and half-sister to Tawateej, the dam of Argentine G3 winner Tahanee.

Tahanee (Stormy Atlantic) was imported to Australia and was a Flemington winner and G2 placed in Adelaide. She will go under the hammer at the upcoming Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale at the Gold Coast in foal to Pride Of Dubai

Vita is out of the Argentinian G1 winner Penita (Pepenador).

Despatch, providing his jockey Todd Pannell with his maiden G1 win, is nominated for the G1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on June 8 but McEvoy indicated that Despatch was likely be spelled.

The win was the third black type victory in succession for Despatch following the Listed Oakbank Stakes and G2 DC McKay Stakes.

Goodwood runner-up Behemoth is also a Magic Millions graduate, costing only $6000 at the MM National Yearling Sale.

It was a notable day for Written Tycoon as he is also the sire of Queensland sprinter Tyzone, brilliant winner of the G3 BRC Sprint at Doomben.

The Toby Edmonds-trained Tyzone (Written Tycoon x Rezonet by Hussonet) recorded his 16th win in 31 starts with a sweeping sprint from the rear of the field to clinch a crack at next month’s Stradbroke.

Now the winner of $643,125, Tyzone was purchased by leading North Queensland trainer Roy Chillemi on behalf of Cairns businessman Tom Hedley for $60,000 at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Horses In Training Sale and prepared him for 11 wins before his transfer to Edmonds at the Gold Coast.

Tyzone dam Rezonet, a three-time winning half-sister to G3-placed Spirited Eagle (Not A Single Doubt) is out of the high class G2 winner Society Bay (Zephyr Bay), the dam of two stakes winners and is the granddam of G1 winner Irish Fling (Darci Brahma)

Rezonet did not produce a foal for five years after Tyzone with her next youngest a weanling filly by Written Tycoon’s son Winning Rupert. She is now in foal to Capitalist.
