Black Tycoon Delivers On Time by The Gurkha
Promising middle distance performer Black Tycoon finally delivered for his first win of this season when he disposed of handy opposition in the Barnicott Plumbing Handicap (1760 metres).
Black Tycoon was suited by a strong pace throughout and an aggressive ride by Mitchell Pateman who made sure the strapping son of Blackfriars was on the move from the 800 metres.
“He needed to go out and win a race like that.” Trent Brown told The Gurkha “Mitchell rode him to instructions and the strong tempo suited him.”
“Black Tycoon has been getting back in unsuitably run races and then having to track wide around the home bend.”
“The thought was to qualify him for the Golden City Motors Stayers series and he can race in a similar event that he won on Sunday in three weeks’ time.”
“If he proves he can stay we would look at the Tattersalls Cup which would qualify him for a start in the Kalgoorlie Cup if he was successful.”
Brown prepared his second training double for the season after Phase Three trounced the opposition in the Gala Tavern Maiden (1400 metres).
“That looked his race and the punters really backed him on the tote. It was good for Kyra (Yuill) to break a run of outs and she gave him a gun ride.”
“Phase Three is suited to racing in Kalgoorlie because he can sit up on the speed and finishes his races of well.”
“Kyra reported he was looking for a mile so we can place him in some of the Class One miles coming up in the next few weeks.”
Brown has enjoyed a great start to his training career but currently only has two horses in work and they both won on Sunday.
“I am about to put Foryouandme back into work but aside from the three, I have run out of horses.”
“We are always on the hunt for fresh blood in the stable and our strike rate has to be up there with the best of them.”
Brown has prepared six winners this season from only 18 runners at an astonishing strike rate of 33%.
