Australia's champion sire headlines YULONG roster

Written Tycoon will stand for a private fee this breeding season as the 21-year-old enters the twilight of a brilliant stallion career that will likely see the best yet to come.

“Written Tycoon is a Champion in every way, and we are taking special care of him as he ages,” said Sam Fairgray.

“Only a handful of outside mares will be bred to him this season. Written Tycoon has been a fantastic stallion and if we can keep breeding some nice foals by him then we’ll be thrilled.”

Written Tycoon claimed his eighth Victorian Champion Sire title at the 2023 Victorian Breeders Awards, with an outstanding season across Australia. He produced four stakes winners for the season and more than 160 individual winners, headlined by star three-year-old filly Coolangatta who won the Gr.1 Moir Stakes and the Gr.1 Lightning Stakes.

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, 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. 

The first sire since Redoute’s Choice and Danehill in the last 25 years to sire two colts to win the two richest Gr.1 two-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 Gr.1 Caulfield Guineas (Ole Kirk) and the Gr.1 Thousand Guineas (Odeum).

His 52 individual stakes winners include Golden Slipper hero Capitalist, Blue Diamond winner Written By, and fellow Gr.1 winners Coolangatta, Ole Kirk, Pippie, Tycoon Tara, Music Magnate (NZ), Despatch, Tyzone, Booker, Odeum, Luna Rossa (NZ), as well as elite filly Enthaar. 

Written Tycoon’s yearlings continue to be hot commodities in the sale ring, averaging $306,792 and selling for up to $1.4 million in 2023.

The Champion Sire has a bumper two-year-old crop coming through this season and has served the cream of Yulong’s broodmare band over the last two years including Gr.1 winners In Her Time, Viddora, Hungry Heart and Melody Belle.
