This filly is by the Champion Victorian Sire Written Tycoon. Written Tycoon is the sire of five individual Group 1 winners including Golden Slipper winner and now sire Capitalist and Blue Diamond winner Written By. He is an extraordinary source of two-year-old speed but also of sound horses that can race on like his most recent Group 1 winner, the four-year-old mare Booker who won the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate. With his lifetime runners to winners at 73%, Written Tycoon's progeny has amassed earnings in excess of $49 million.

This filly is an early foal out of the city winning Fastnet Rock mare Princess Layla. A debut winner as a two-year-old, Princess Layla just missed out on placing in a stakes races during her juvenile season. A first up winner as a three-year-old, the tough mare placed in four more races during her campaign. Princess Layla is the dam of two foals to race both winners. She is a half-sister to seven winners including two stakes-placed horses in Kadena Lane and Destined To Be. This filly's pedigree boasts stakes horses all throughout with an international flavour. She is a sharp looking filly by the right sire in Written Tycoon to make an early two-year-old and we could not me be more excited to add her to our class of 2019.
