Woodside to showcase precocious youngsters at the Magics

Woodside Park's Lot 217

The Magic Millions arena is viewed by Woodside Park Stud as the perfect stage to audition the first progeny of resident stallion Rich Enuff (Written Tycoon) and they’re confident of flawless performances.

Tylden based Woodside Park Stud’s draft at the Gold Coast Yearling Sale will feature a great example of a son and a daughter of exciting newcomer Rich Enuff.

“We can’t wait for the rest of the market to see them,” James Price said. 

“They are precocious and very muscular and exactly the right types for Magic Millions to promote early 2-year-old speed horses.”

Rich Enuff was initially trained by Ken Keys, who produced him to win the Group 2 Danehill Stakes off the back of success in the Listed McKenzie Stakes.

He held his form admirably to complete a hat-trick of victories in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude before a runner-up finish in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.

Rich Enuff subsequently transferred to Peter and Paul Snowden’s stable and placed in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes before his retirement to stand alongside his Group 1 winning father Written Tycoon, a champion sire of 2-year-olds.

“The key to Rich Enuff is that he just finished his third season and he covered more mares than he did in the first two years,” Price said.

“He’s produced foals that breeders like and come January we’re sure his yearlings will sell well. It really bodes well and hopefully we’ll be seeing some decent 2-year-olds out a few months after the Sale.”

Lot 217 will be Woodside’s first son of Rich Enuff through the ring at the Gold Coast and the chestnut is from the family of the Group 1 winning sisters Abbey Marie (Redoute’s Choice) and Absolutely.

“He’s out of The Duster is a powerful and a good walker with a great hip,” Price said.

“Buyers will see a lot of the dam-sire Not A Single Doubt in him – he’s a neat looker.”

The colt’s dam is a three-quarter sister to the Group 3 Tibbie Handicap winner, She’s Clean (Redoute’s Choice).

The stud’s second offering, Lot 318, is a half-sister to the multiple winner and Group 1 placegetter Masthead (Written Tycoon).

 “The filly has got a bit more size and scope and is just as strong as the colt,” Price said. 

“She’s out of a Redoute’s Choice mare and you can certainly see her mother’s father in her. They are two different horses, but both very strong and appealing to the eye.”

The filly’s pedigree also features the Group 1 winners Sizzling (Snitzel) and D’Argento (So You Think {NZ}).

Woodside will also offer a pair of yearlings by stud star Written Tycoon and two by Zoustar (Northern Meteor).

“It’s exciting to see the Written Tycoons, one of the leading stallions by numbers at Magic Millions and he’s had a great year led by Written By winning the Group 1 Blue Diamond,” Price said.

Their colt, Lot 380, is from the same family as the Rich Enuff filly being from a half-sister to Matshead.

“He’s out of Balmodena and is a beautiful type who will have plenty appeal,” Price said.

The filly, Lot 485, is out of a half-sister to the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes winner Cluster (Fastnet Rock) and a direct descendant of the Group 1 Champagne Stakes winner I Like Diamonds (Baguette).

“She’ll be popular. She’s an exceptional physical type and she’ll meet the market,” Price said.

As agent, Woodside’s Magic Millions consignment is completed by two more Written Tycoon fillies, Lot 70 and Lot 178 a colt by Wandjina at Lot 685.

The former is out of the stakes winner Rock My Pago (Rock Of Gibraltar {IRE}), the second daughter of Written Tycoon is from the family of Group 1 Wood Memorial winner and sire Bellamy Road (USA) (Concerto {USA}) and the Wandjina features the eight-time Group 1 winner Mahogany (Last Tycoon {IRE}) in his pedigree.

“There’s not a tail to our draft at all,” Price said. “We’re not taking any to Magic Millions that we feel we’ll have any trouble selling. It’s going to be exciting to get to the Gold Coast.”
