Winning Rupert was prepared by Warwick Farm trainer Bjorn Baker to win five of his six race starts but complication resulting from knee surgery has seen Newgate, China Horse Club and a syndicate of leading breeders acquired the Written Tycoon colt to begin stud duties this coming Spring.

Baker was very disappointed not to be able to prepare Winning Rupert for the 2017 Spring Carnival after it was discovered that he suffered some bone chips in his knee following his first defeat when fourth to Flying Jess in the $2m Gold Coast Magic Millions 3yo Guineas (1400m) at the Gold Coast on January 14.

“Mixed emotion about that news,” Baker told RSN’s Racing Ahead.

“I haven’t had a horse as probably as fast as Winning Rupert. Was really looking forward to getting him back in the Spring but he is probably has a little bit more going on when he had the knee surgery than we thought.”

“He had more than the one chip, a couple of chips there and I guess you had to look at other opportunities.”

“There is always a risk of bringing him back. From a training point of view horses like that are very hard to find, disappointing from that regard.”

Winning Rupert was in sensational form in the lead up to the Magic Millions Carnival with three devastating wins at Eagle Farm and Doomben and Baker said that on those winning efforts he was certain the colt would have made a major impact in the Srping.

“To see how he won those races up there with a high cruising speed he has got, I think that if he came back and he was sound, he would have gone to the top level,” Baker said.

“I have a couple of good sprinters in the stable, a couple of them are in on Saturday and everything he has done has been right up with them if not better.”

China Horse Club Manager Michael Wallace said that Winning Rupert would be given every chance to make an immediate impact at stud with a draft of high quality mares on his books.

“We absolutely believe Winning Rupert was one of the most talented horses in the country and accordingly we will be supporting him with some of our very best mares,” Wallace said.

Newgate Director of Stallions and Sales Bruce Slade agreed that Winning Rupert had all the right credentials to be a success in the breeding barn.

“Winning Rupert is a no brainer. The history of Australia’s Champion stallions tells us that to pass on elite speed you must possess it yourself first. Winning Rupert won five from six and broke two track records,” Slade said.

“His wins were impressive to the eye and impressive on the clock. We will be supporting him heavily along with many of Australia’s leading breeders, with a long-term view.”

Winning Rupert will be joining a high quality line up of stallions at Newgate that includes 2016 Golden Slipper winner Capitalist, Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Criterion and multiple Group 1 winner and 2014 – 2015 racehorse of the year Dissident to name a few.

Winning Rupert was the winner of five of his six starts and as well as earning $579,500 in prizemoney, also picked up a $500,000 Summer Crown Bonus for winning the 1200m 3yo Plate at Eagle Farm on December 3, the Listed $100,000 Delfina’s Bistro Gold Edition Plate (1200m) at Doomben on December 17 and the Group 3 $200,000 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) at Eagle Farm on December 31.
