Tycoon Tara wins second Group race

SYDNEY Aug 20 2016

The breeding barn can wait for Tycoon Tara who has backed up a Group win on the heaviest Randwick track in memory with another on the first good surface for months.

The former Victorian has now had two starts for Peter and Paul Snowden for wins in the Group Two Missile (1200m) and Saturday's Bob Ingham Show County Quality over the same distance.

The race was named in honour of Ingham for whom the Snowdens worked for many years before he sold his racing concern to Sheikh Mohammed.

Ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, Tycoon Tara ($5.50) raced on the speed and fought off Group One winner and race favourite Le Romain ($4.20) in the straight to win by 1-1/4 lengths with Mount Nebo ($10) coming from last for third.

"She's not going anywhere soon," Paul Snowden said.

"I don't think the owners want to retire her while she's in winning form.

"We'll find another couple of nice races for her."

Although she is a newcomer to the stable, Snowden said she was as relaxed as if she had been there all her life.

"She is so relaxed and is a push-button horse," he said.

"And to see her in the yard today, well horses don't look as good as that and not run well."

Kris Lees, trainer of Randwick Guineas winner Le Romain, said the race fitness of the winner was the telling factor.

"The mare in form had the run under her belt but I thought he raced really well," he said.

"He's come on the right way and he'll take good improvement out of the run."
