Monday, 19th December 2016

At Doomben in Brisbane, Woodside Park's Gr2-winning stallion Written Tycoon (Iglesias-Party Miss, by Kenmare) added a black-type success when boom 3YO colt Winning Rupert (Written Tycoon-Winaura, by Show a Heart) bolted up by 5.5 lengths for trainer Bjorn Baker in the $100,000 Listed Gold Edition Plate (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO gelding Deep image (Testa Rossa-Starwish, by Redoute's Choice) & 3YO filly Our Beebee (Red Dazzler-Royal Shiraz, by Sequalo). A $67,500 purchase by Baker at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale from the draft of Eliza Park International, Winning Rupert extended his unbeaten record to 4 wins (including the Gr2 Champagne Classic) from 4 starts for $361,500 earnings. Should Winning Rupert win the Gr3 Vo Rogue Plate (1400m) in two weeks time, he will collect a $500,000 bonus for also winning the QTIS Three-Year-Old Plate & Gold Edition Plate as part of the Queensland Summer Crowns series. His primary summer target is the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast on 14 January.
