Say he were not to come back from his bone chip removal (both front knees, not just one).

What would he stand for at stud?

Obviously has outrageous ability and could run time.

But he never raced outside Qld, never beat anything of real note and failed, with excuses, at his biggest test.

No distaff pedigree, but by a stallion who has become sexy.

He had plenty of hype, which doesn't hurt when a stallion goes to the breeding barn.

I've got him pegged as a poor man's Deep Field.

$12,500-$15,000? Around the same mark as Rich Enuff, another hype horse.

I'd say about $10,000

It seems a little premature to be retiring him.

I'd say it's related to the injury Auth.

Stud deal was done last Friday night/Saturday morning, subject to vet report.

Horse was never going to race again.

Dunno why Shane Anderson started this crap on twitter this afternoon...

             Winning Rupert not yet retired. A lucrative stud offer has been made but owners yet to accept. Had surgery for bone chips. More on @Racing

...only to confirm a few hours later that the horse had indeed been retired.

Continues to live up to your expectations.

To be fair to Shane in this case Bjorn had tweeted something similar.

J.R.B is spot on the money. Deal was done late last week.

And I see figures of $8m-$9m being bandied about.

Not even close.

The proposed service fee would have to be around the $30,000 mark to justify a purchase price of that magnitude.

The horse's complete lack of pedigree and Qld racing career dictate that he can't stand for anything like that amount.

Closer to half the mooted numbers.

If there were a petition to get you back here to replace him, I'd be the first to sign it.

I've heard a tick north of $5mill.

They are floating a service fee of about $18,000.

Given that they've just announced their other Written Tycoon stallion, Capitalist, at $55,000, I s'pose the obvious marketing angle is that WR is 'Capitalist-lite'.

Just as talented, but much cheaper, as he lacks Capitalist's pedigree and race record.

Fee announced - $22,000 incl GST.

Seems a tad ambitious to me.
