Crabbia Patience Rewarded

Dynasty 8yo maintains his enthusiasm

It has been a long time between drinks for Fred Crabbia’s 8yo gelding It Is Written. It takes patience and positivity to keep plugging away but the former Christmas Handicap winner rewarded the loyalty when he scored his first victory in thirty months at Fairview on Friday.

Coming on late under Chase Maujean off a nice pace in the R110 000 Fairview 1800, the Tara Laing-trained  It Is Written charged home at 22-1 to beat the hat-trick chasing Querari Viking by 1,25 lengths in a time of 108,82 secs.

It Is Written wasn’t exactly the most popular winner of the afternoon, but the feat of keeping the 8yo on the boil was a real feather in the cap of hard-slogging trainer Tara Laing

It Is Written was bred by Keivan Stud and is a son of Equus outstanding stallion Dynasty out of the one-time winning Northfields mare, Good Rapport.

A R210 000 National Yearling Sale purchase, It Is Written has now won R847 825 in stakes and took his win tally to 9 with 10 places from 48 starts.
