Will he won’t he, will he won’t he, will he … he did! Huge effort by the unbeaten Written Tycoon 2YO, Grand Tycoon, in today’s $100,000 Shaw Contracting Tasmanian Gold Sovereign Stakes at Launceston fighting on gamely to grab a thrilling victory right on the wire.
Grand Tycoon has now won six from six and it’s his second black type victory on the trot after taking out the Elwick Stakes on 3 February.
Trained by Barry Campbell, this is the biggest payday thus far for Grand Tycoon and continues a great week for Written Tycoon who had It Is Written win at Moonee Valley on Friday night and Grand Emperor score at Caulfield on Saturday.
Indeed, Grand Emperor is entered for Saturday’s $500,000 Group One Australian Guineas so it could be a VERY big week for Written Tycoon!
