Former Victorian galloper Tycoon Tara made it back-to-back wins for Snowden Racing in the Group 3 $125,000 Bob Ingham Toy Show County Quality (1200m) at Randwick on August 10, registering her fourth career victory at Group level.
The six-year-old Written Tycoon mare produced an upset win in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) weeks earlier and was too good for them again in the Toy Show, proving she is no fluke.
Piloted by Kerrin McEvoy, Tycoon Tara raced handy on the speed and fought off Group 1 Randwick Guineas winner Le Romain to win by 1.3 lengths.
"To see her in the yard today, well horses don't look as good as that and not run well.
“Kerrin rode a smart race and looked the winner a long way from home. It’s no shock to us and it was no fluke seeing her win the Missile either,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden.
"I don't think the owners want to retire her while she's in winning form so we'll find another couple of nice races for her in Melbourne, knowing she handles that way of going.”
Although she is a newcomer to the stable, Tycoon Tara has settled in beautifully and loves the new environment, proving a delight to deal with.
"She’s a relaxed customer and a push-button horse, and has really thrived in the new environment which is not uncommon for older horses."
