Wrote, Highview Stud's new stallion for the upcoming breeding season, hasn't taken long to register his first winner.
The son of High Chaparral has had his first crop hit the track this seaon in the US, and on the weekend, Wrote's first turf runner High Providence won in emphatic fashion.
High Providence debuted at Lone Star Park over seven and a half furlongs. Slow out of the gates, he took his time to find his feet and travelled for the early stages of the races five lengths behind the main body of the field. His jockey let him relax into the race and he began to make smooth progress forward approaching the home straight. Coming widest of all around the turn, he put paid to the short priced favourite easily and won by a comfortable one and a half lengths.
Wrote is about to start his first New Zealand breeding season at Highview Stud, standing for a fee of $5,000. It is interesting to note that the fifth dam of both High Providence's sire and dam is Special, the acclaimed 'Blue Hen'. Special features close up in the peidgrees of key Australasian stallions, including Encosta De Lago, Iffraaj and Stravinsky.
There has been a very positive response in terms of bookings to Wrote; having a debut runner win so impressively will only add to this.
