Australia's champion sire headlines YULONG roster

Australia’s Champion Sire – Written Tycoon adds proven star quality to an exciting young roster.

The winner of the G2 Todman S. in a racing career for his owner Sheriff Iskander, who has maintained his involvement right through to the present day, Written Tycoon began his stud career in 2007 at a service fee of $8,250, but his exceptional results soon brought a meteoric rise.

Australia’s leading first season sire in 2010/11, and leading sire of two-year-olds in 2015/16, and the 2020/21 Australian Champion, Written Tycoon has sired a total of 725 winners from 950 runners to date.

The first sire since Redoute’s Choice and Danehill in the last 25 years to sire two colts to win the two richest Group 1 2-year-old features in Australia. Capitalist took out the 2016 Golden Slipper Stakes, while Written By claimed victory in the 2018 Blue Diamond Stakes.

He is also the first stallion in 44 years to sire the winner of both the G1 Caulfield Guineas (Ole Kirk) and the G1 Thousand Guineas (Odeum).

His 46 individual stakes winners include Golden Slipper hero Capitalist, Blue Diamond winner Written By, and fellow Group 1 winners Ole Kirk, Pippie, Tycoon Tara, Music Magnate (NZ), Despatch, Tyzone, Booker, Odeum, Luna Rossa (NZ), as well as elite fillies Coolangatta and Enthaar. 

Many of his sons are now forging their own careers at stud, including leading first season sire Capitalist, Rich Enuff, Winning Rupert, Written By and Ole Kirk. 

Written Tycoon’s yearlings continue to be hot commodities in the sale ring, averaging over $325,000 and selling for up to $1.4 million in 2022.

During his first season at Yulong Stud he covered some of Australia’s most prolific mares, including 14-time Group 1 winning Melody Belle, top sprinters In Her Time and Viddora, Greysful Glamor and elite juvenile Catch Me, amongst others.
