Posting five wins and a further three minor place finishes through her ten career starts so far, Tycoon Tara returned to racing for a comfortable win in a Dunkeld sprint over 1000m on November 15th and has worked towards consecutive wins in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Premier Signs Stakes (1400m) most recently.

Understandably thrilled with her ability to find competitive form and condition quickly, Wilde told AAP the Written Tycoon mare will return to racing following a brief freshen-up in Saturday’s Vobis Gold Sprint (1200m) at Caulfield before floating to South Australia for the 2015 Robert Sangster Classic.

“I’ll talk to the owners but I’m pretty sure that’s the way we’ll go,” Wilde said.

“The 1100 metres is probably the ideal distance but I thought outside of Trust In A Gust the 1200 metre race looked a lot softer option.

“She seems to have really good speed so with that in mind we thought we’d give her a freshen-up and focus on that race (Robert Sangster Classic).

“That’s her grand final.

“We were thinking of giving her some trials leading in, but thought a race might have her absolutely spot-on.”

Unable to make much of an impact through two starts at her local Warrnambool course on debut in late 2013, Tycoon Tara returned to racing in positive form over the early stages of 2014; running third in the Sungold Mile Maiden Plate (1000m) before breaking through for a maiden race win in the Gillear Lime & Sandstone Maiden (1300m).

Included amongst a list of 42 in 2015 Vobis Gold Sprint nominations, Tycoon Tara is expected to be confirmed in a final field of 16 on Wednesday, April 15th.
