Blue Gum Sells Written Tycoon Colt At Inglis Premier Sale For A$1.1m
James Harron purchased a Written Tycoon colt at the recent Inglis Melbourne Premier for A$1.1 million. Furthermore, the colt was knocked down to his syndicate by delaying a media interview
The colt was the fourth million-dollar lot ever sold by Written Tycoon, and the second most expensive colt, he is the fourth living foal out of Gybe, an ATC Gimcrack Stakes winner. The million-dollar milestone moment was not lost on Blue Gum’s Philip Campbell with the colt becoming the farm’s first seven-figure yearling in 40 years of selling horses. He was offered on behalf of Dorrington Farm.
Fittingly, the retiring Simon Vivian was on the podium conducting the auction when the seven-figure colt was sold.
