Written Tycoon enjoyed another sensational day at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, with his eight yearlings selling for just under $3.5 million.
The progeny of Yulong’s superstar stallion were in high demand throughout another action-packed day in Bundall, with Lot 583 – a filly out of Stakes-placed mare Supara – knocked down for $800,000.
The buyer was none other than David Ellis of Te Akau Racing fame, who seems certain to take the bay filly – who is both VOBIS nominated and VOBIS Sires eligible – back to New Zealand with him.
The China Horse Club / Newgate Bloodstock / Trilogy Racing partnership have been amongst the biggest spenders so far this week and the powerful trio put their hand up for another Written Tycoon, paying $775,000 for Lot 536, an athletic colt out of Slumber Party.
Not to be outdone, renowned bloodstock supremo James Harron paid $750,000 for an equally striking Written Tycoon colt, whose dam Rose Ahead was producing her first foal.
Other notable Written Tycoons included a handsome colt out of Ready to Rule, sold to Bennett Racing for $300,000; and a well-built colt out of Secret Liaison, knocked down for $375,000 to George Moore Bloodstock.
