Owner Fred Crabbia must have heard the cries from the 8y old gelding It Is Written not to retire him from racing.

It Is Written won the R110 000 Fairview 1800 (Non-Black Type) on the polytrack on Friday (28th Sept) with Chase Maujean in the saddle.

Crabbia, known as a patient owner, wanted to retire It Is Written but decided to give him one last chance to show he can still win races.

The way he won on Friday indicated that there might me some more victories in the future. Any retirement plans must be postponed.

It was the first time in two and a half years that It Is Written has won a race and it is his first victory for the yard of trainer Tara Laing. He was formerly trained by Justin Snaith.

Laing also won the Fairview 1800 last year with Stormy Eclipse.

It Is Written has now won 9 races from 48 starts for total stake money of R847 825.
