Black Tycoon Back on 2014 Perth Cup Track

After a number of disastrous runs earlier this prep, Justin Warwick’s veteran stayer Black Tycoon is back on track for a shot at the Perth Cup 2014 on New Year’s Day after a Railway Stakes Day win over the weekend.

The Blackfriars eight-year-old won their first race since June when top Hong Kong hoop Douglas White travelled over to ride them to a tight long neck victory over Knightlike in the $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2100m).

The Vaughn Sigley-trained outsider Daneclicked then finished off the winning Tattersall’s Cup trifecta with no sign of the well-beaten favourite Rohan ($2.20) who dropped right out eventually crossing eighth.

With their last win being in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) at Belmont Park during the winter, it was important for Black Tycoon to break the drought and prove they were worthy of staying in work until the end of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

The class of Whyte, who has won the past 13 Hong Kong jockey premierships, proved the advantage in the Tattersall’s Cup for the old warhorse.

Whyte let them settle just off the speed in fifth before moving them up front to take the lead with 200m left to travel.

The star jockey was thrilled the horse held on for the win after narrowly missing out on the $100,000 Listed Placid Ark Stakes (1200m) win with the Simon Miller-trained Sujet ($2.70) who was beaten under a quarter of a length by Jim Taylor’s Petrol Power ($3) who was scratched from the WA Guineas.

“I’m very happy to get a winner on the board,” Whyte told the West Australian.

“That’s what I came here to do.

“He travelled really sweetly and he was tough at the end.”

Having been beaten nearly five lengths the run before when blocked for a run in the final stages of the Listed Ascot Gold Cup (1800m) on November 9 won by Moonlight Bay, Black Tycoon enjoyed a kinder ride on Saturday in the Tattersall’s Cup.

Now they look a good chance of stepping up to the mile and a half for the $400,000 Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) on January 1 back at Ascot which will be their first look at the distance.
