Front-running Victorian bred star, Rich Enuff has transferred to Peter and Paul Snowden and will continue his racing career in Sydney.
“He’s a lovely individual and has settled in okay,” Paul Snowden reported.
“The new environment might switch him on.”
Rich Enuff (Written Tycoon) was one of Melbourne’s star three-year-olds at the 2014 spring carnival winning the G2 Danehill Stakes and G3 Guineas Prelude before running a courageous second to the Snowden-trained Shooting To Win in the G1 Caulfield Guineas.
Woodside Park Stud owner Mark Rowsthorn subsequently purchased a share and the breeding rights to the colt from owner-trainer Ken Keys, his wife Louise and stable clients Colin & Grace Johnston.
He returned to action after an injury-enforced spell earlier this season but didn’t fire in a campaign that finished with a disappointing effort in the G1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley.
“He missed the autumn carnival with a leg injury and Damien (Oliver) said he felt too heavy and soft in the spring,” Keys said.
“It was a commercial decision to send him to the Snowdens and everything is negotiable as to where and how long he races.
“We’re realists. Woodside Park has a vested interest, as we do. His value will quadruple if he can win a Group 1 in the autumn.”
Keys has a 2yo half-sister by Reward For Effort to Rich Enuff and their dam Hotnuff (Spartacus) foaled a Written Tycoon filly in October. The mare visited another Woodside Park sire, Zoustar in the 2015 covering season.
