Australian Racing: Swoosh potentially a shrewd purchase

Written Swoosh will attempt to pay back some of the large investment that trainer Phillip Stokes has made in her family when she lines up at Caulfield.

By Written Tycoon, the two-year-old will make her debut in the fillies' Blue Diamond Preview and is a 12/1 chance for the Group 3 contest.

Stokes went to $850,000 - his largest ever investment in a yearling - for the half-brother (Written Tycoon) to Written Swoosh by Trapeze Artist at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale last week.

The filly is also half-sister to three-year-old stablemate Brazen Boy, while Written Swoosh is out of More Than Ready mare Cocoa Doll, a half-sister to Away Game, and was purchased for $340,000 as a yearling.

"She's related to Brazen Boy but she's a lot more tractable and she listens," Stokes told

"She's had a couple of trials and went very well. Brett Prebble came out to gallop her on Saturday morning and he really liked her, she worked with an older horse and she rounded it off well.

"Can she win? I don't know, but we're chasing black-type and I think she's a filly capable of getting that. I wouldn't be running her in the Preview if I didn't think she could measure up.

"I think I've got her pretty screwed down for this, so win or lose she'll have a little break after this and she probably won't end up in the Blue Diamond."
