It Is Written (Stuart Randolph) powers home to pick up the major spoils in the Gr3 Christmas Handicap
Trainer Dean Kannemeyer put the cherry on top of a superb 2015 out of his permanent Summerveld satellite base when Fred Crabbia’s It Is Written stormed home to win the R250 000 Gr3 Christmas Handicap at a mixed polytrack-turf meeting at Greyville on Boxing Day.

After the enthusiastic 9yo Royal Zulu Warrior had set a decent gallop in the well subscribed feature , the race for glory was on down the home straight and any one of half the field looked to have a chance at the 300m marker.

With Anton Marcus unleashing the consistent Stormy Eclipse down the wide outside from many lengths back, Stuart Randolph produced It Is Written down the inside as the Keivan Stud-bred son of Dynasty took the shortest route home.

It Is Written ran on best to win well by 1,25 lengths in a time of 96,91 secs.

A solid handicapper, It Is Written showed early promise and was being spoken about as a July candidate. His two KZN Champions Season victories culminated in a good win in the KZN Breeders 1600.

He ran in the Consolation July where he finished 8,40 lengths behind Ultimate Dollar.

It was Kannemeyer’s second December feature winner for owner Fred Crabbia, after Captain Alfredo (out of a King Of Kings mare) had clinched top honours in the Listed Southeaster Sprint at Kenilworth on 5 December.

It Is Written was bred by Keivan Stud and is a son of Dynasty out of the one-time winning Northfields mare, Good Rapport who has produced over 4 winners to date. The mare is a half-sister to American Flyer, from the damline of Australian 2YO Champion filly, Midnight Fever.

A R210 000 National Yearling Sale purchase, It Is Written has now won R535 925 in stakes and took his win tally to 7 with 2 places from 21 starts.

Congratulations to all concerned!
