Addicted To Winning

May 17, 2015

The Donald Classic is one of the stronger two-year-old provincial contests at this time of year and it was a pleasure for the stable to win it with promising debutant Written Addiction.

A good-looking son of the in-form Written Tycoon, Written Addiction settled nicely midfield for Bill Egan and when asked for his effort along the rails he showed plenty of heart.

"He has shown a lot of promise at home so it was great to see him take it to the races and win so well on debut," Robbie Griffiths said.

"I have had a lot of success with Written Tycoon's progeny and hopefully this horse can keep stepping up."

A $70,000 Magic Millions purchase raced by Errol Campbell, John Smith, Peter Morey, Terry White, Dennis Parnell, Bernie O'Connor, Joy McGregor, Graeme McGregor, John Box, Trevor Lovitt, Brett McGuinness, Bruce Parnell and Tony Ross, Written Addiction was bred by Eliza Park.

He is the first foal produced by the winning Viscount mare Addiction, a half-sister to the Gr.2 Alister Clark Stakes winner Domesky.
