Bay | 16.1 hh | 2009 | High Chaparral (USA) ex Desert Classic (GB) by Green Desert


$8,000 +GST


Sire of 81 winners including G1 Oaks winner Pulchritudinous, Australian G2 winner Wrote to Arataki, G3 winner and G1 2nd placed Best Seller (1000 Guineas) and stakes performers Love Letter and High Providence.

Wrote is from the world famous stallion family of Sadler’s Wells, Nureyev and Fairy King. 

His pedigree is very exciting as he carries a double up to the blue hen mare Special. 

He is the most precocious son of High Chaparral, who crossed famously well with Kiwi mares during his time in New Zealand. 

His international race career featured a win in the G1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf, and placings in the G2 U.A.E. Derby, G2 Newmarket Royal Lodge Stakes and G2 Leopardstown Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial.

A phenomenal type, he was rated A+ on conformation by well-known Kentucky-based Bloodstock consultant Cecil Seaman, an expert in bio-mechanics. Less than 0.5% of all horses measured by Seaman fit into the A+ category which includes Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed and American Pharaoh.

His progeny have sold for up to $110,000 in the sale ring and privately now for well over $1 million!

"He's very much in the image of his sire - a powerful, correct horse and the only son of High Chaparral to have won a Group One two-year-old race.  He was rated an A+ on conformation by Cecil Seaman, who is an expert in biomechanics. He has a fantastic temperament, he's very well behaved and great to do anything with."

Brent Gillovic, Highview Stud

"High Chaparral has enjoyed success when bred over certain branches of the Northern Dancer line. Wrote is out of a mare from the Danzig line through Green Desert, but should cross well over mares from other branches of that line, including Danehill. Both Danehill and his son Danehill Dancer are broodmare sires of stakes winners by High Chaparral." 

Alan Porter, Pedigree Expert
