Unraced Written Scandal impresses in Rosehill trial

There were eight heats won by juveniles at the trials conducted on Rosehill on Tuesday with three unraced two-year-olds landing their respective events. 

The Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou-trained She Conquers, an unraced filly by Kingstar Farm-based Unite And Conquer (Hinchinbrook), finished second in her first public barrier trial at Rosehill on May 24. She looked professional on Tuesday, finishing 0.3 lengths ahead of the Chris Waller-trained Kilkenny (I Am Invincible) in her 900-metre heat. 

She Conquers was bought by Group One Thoroughbreds, Kingstar Farm and her trainers for $44,000 from the Kingstar Farm draft at last year’s Inglis Classic Yearling Sale. The filly is out of four-time winner She Brings (Sebring) and hails from the same family as Group 2 scorer Draw Card (Arch Sculptor). 

The next heat of the morning was also taken out by another unraced filly in the shape of Written Scandal (Written Tycoon). Trained by Peter and Paul Snowden and ridden by Tom Sherry, the filly was having her first trial and she looked in control throughout the 900-metre heat, eventually coming away to beat the Waller-trained Extremely Hardys (Extreme Choice) by 0.7 lengths. 

Socrazyinlove, an unraced daughter of I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) finished third. 

Bred by Arrowfield Group and Cloros Bloodstock, Written Scandal was purchased by Australian Bloodstock, her trainers and William Johnson Bloodstock for $320,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in 2023. 

The filly is out of the winning War Front (Danzig) mare Scandaleuse, who is herself out of US Grade 1 winner Aruna (Mr. Greeley) and she is a daughter of Grade 2 winner Surya (Unbridled), who also produced Grade 2 winner Hoop Of Colour (Distorted Humor). 

Waller also saddled a juvenile trial winner on Tuesday with Swelter, an untried daughter of Darley’s star shuttler Too Darn Hot (Dubawi), landing her 900-metre heat. 

The two-year-old beat the James Cummings-trained Otherwise (Lonhro) by 1.5 lengths, with Art’s Alive (Snitzel) coming home a further 0.6 lengths away in third. 

Bred by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, the filly was bought by Magic Bloodstock, Noel and Maria Greenhalgh, Julia Ritchie and Neil Werrett for $410,000 from the Segenhoe Stud draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale last year. 

Out of dual-winning Exceed And Excel (Danehill) mare Boorooj, who was bought by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum for $750,000 at the 2016 edition of the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale. 

Boorooj herself is out of Flight Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) winner Unearthly (Zabeel) and she also produced Schweppes Oaks (Gr 1, 2000m) winner Invest (Dehere).

Other two-year-old winners on Tuesday were the Godolphin-trained Gram (Exceed And Excel), a brother to Group 3 scorer Zulfiqar, who finished third behind subsequent Group 2 winner Erno’s Cube (Rubick) on his debut at Newcastle in November, while his stablemate Caravanserai (Blue Point), a half-brother to multiple Group 1 winner Alizee (Sepoy), also landed his 900-metre trial. 

The Snowden’s sent out Customized (Capitalist) to win his 1030-metre heat, while Kingdom Undersiege (I Am Invincible) and Mawjood (Tassort) won their respective 900-metre events.
