Everything seems to be coming up roses of late for Woodside Park Stud.
The Tylden property welcomes Zoustar to its stallion roster in 2015 but the dual Group 1 winning son of Northern Meteor will have to share the limelight with in-form stallion Written Tycoon.
In just over a week, Woodside stallion Written Tycoon has sired three stakes winners – It Is Written (LR MVRC Abel Stakes), Stoker (MRC RL Inglis Premier) and Tycoon Tara (MRC G3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes).
Having her first start in stakes company, Tycoon Tara become the 9th stakes winner for Written Tycoon. She was racing second-up and beat Bonaria (Redoute’s Choice) by one and three quarter lengths.
Tycoon Tara’s victory at Caulfield on Saturday came shortly after Woodside Park-bred San Nicasio (Hard Spun) opened his stakes account in the G2 Autumn Stakes.
Sent straight to the front by Ben Melham, the daughter of Written Tycoon kept up a relentless gallop to defeat the Group 1 winner Bonaria by one and three-quarter lengths with dual Group III winner Politeness in third.
Tycoon Tara(4 m Written Tycoon – Mosstara by Encores) is a homebred for Tony Krushka and has won 4 times in 9 starts for earnings of $186,920. “I was a little bit cautious because I wanted to take her to Moonee Valley in a week’s time,” trainer Simon Wilde admitted. “But Tony requested she run today and now I’m glad she did.”
