Breeders Cup Winner To Stand In New Zealand

Highview Stud has sealed a deal to bring Wrote, a unique son of High Chaparral, to stand in New Zealand.

Highview Stud’s Brent Gillovic has completed a deal to stand the G1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf winner alongside current resident sire Bullbars.

“He’s the only Group One-winning two-year-old son of High Chaparral in the world,” Gillovic said.


“I was first alerted to the horse by an American agent and when I went to the US Masters Golf at Augusta in 2015 and I went down to Florida to see him.

“I liked what I saw. He’s very much in the image of his sire – a powerful, correct horse.

“I had hoped to purchase him, but he is owned by a group who had bought him as part of a package of horses to race and they aren’t interested in selling him.

“I couldn’t get the horse out of my mind and last year I made more inquires. Now, I’ve managed to acquire him as a shuttle stallion and I couldn’t be more excited.”

The Irish-bred Wrote Horseform won three of his nine starts for Aidan O’Brien.

Apart from his Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf win he was placed in the G2 Newmarket Royal Lodge Stakes, UAE Derby at Meydan and the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown in Ireland.

“He’s got two-year-olds in Florida now. I saw his first five foals in 2015 and they were very nice individuals.”

The late High Chaparral stood in New Zealand where he crossed with Kiwi mares to produce champions So You Think, It’s A Dundeel, Shoot Out, Descarado and Monaco Consul.

Wrote’s dam Desert Classic (Green Desert) hails from one of the best stallion families in the world.

Her third dam is Special, the mother of Nureyev and grand-dam of Sadler’s Wells and Fairy King. It is also the family of Stravinksy, who enjoyed success in New Zealand.

Wrote is currently in quarantine in Kentucky.

He will arrive in New Zealand in June he will take up residence at Highview Stud in July on a fee of $5000 + GST.
