Written By is a son of one of our best modern day Australian-bred sires, Written Tycoon, who carries several influential Colonial elements including Vain, Better Boy and Marscay.

Written By’s dam Yau Chin brings in some prepotent female lines via her damsire Tobougg (Ire) and damsire Umatilla (USA), while keeping the Colonial theme prominent with the inclusion of her second damsire, the great conveyor of early speed, Rory’s Jester.

A Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes winner, Written By displayed the precocious attributes on the track for which many of his ancestors are famous.

Written By’s second damsire Umatilla is a descendant of the great Best In Show, a Blue Hen who also appears near the top of Written By’s pedigree via Last Tycoon, creating highly desirable line breeding.

Best In Show’s presence in pedigrees as the ancestress of sires such as REDOUTE’S CHOICE, El L GRAN SENOR, AL MAHER, DOMESDAY, MASTERCLASS, MANHATTAN RAIN, HURRICANE SKY and RUBICK speaks volumes for her influence.

Written By, who is free of Danzig and his son Danehill, looks a great mating for mares carrying more BEST IN SHOW via the above stallions, giving him a vast choice of broodmares carrying this line alone.

This is not, however, the limit of Written By’s potential broodmare compatibility. His sire Written Tycoon is working very well with a wide variety of sire lines in his mares. Written By’s pedigree is free of other mainstream sire lines such as MR PROSPECTOR, SIR TRISTRAM, RED RANSOM and HALO and judging by his sire’s patterns, will welcome mares from these lines.
