What a week it was last week for progeny of champion Victorian sire Written Tycoon.
The Woodside Park stallion had no less than 12 of his own greet the winning post in style. They saluted in five different states across ten separate racecourses demonstrating their versatility.

Written Tycoon tops the Victorian sires premiership (by earnings) with progeny earnings of $2.84 million just over 4 months into the racing season. In terms of active Victorian stallions, he is followed by Sun Stud’s Magnus and Darley Northwood’s Reset.
The Victorian second season sires table has Darley’s Helmet out front with progeny earnings of $428,000 and 9 winners. Next comes Larneuk’s Ilovethiscity followed by Sun Stud’s Moshe.
The Victorian first season sires will be a fascinating watch over coming months. Sun Stud’s Squamosa already has a winner in New Zealand while Swettenham’s Americain has his first Australian mainland runner potentially at Flemington on Saturday. Others with good numbers of first crop foals to challenge these two young sires could be Lucas Cranach (Bullarook) and Jungle Ruler (Bombora Downs).
