At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Woodside Park's Gr2-winning stallion Written Tycoon (Iglesias-Party Miss, by Kenmare) added a stakes success when millionaire 6YO gelding Music Magnate (Written Tycoon-Concert Girl, by Danehill Dancer) scored by just under a length for trainer Bjorn Baker in the $150,000 Listed Christmas Classic (1200m). The placings were filled by 7YO geldings Dothraki (Mossman-Volantis, by Flying Spur) & Isorich (Choisir-A Little Naughty, by Rustic Amber). Sent off favourite following a lengthy break after two sub-par runs in May, Music Magnate bounced back to take his record to 9 wins (including the Gr1 Doomben 10,000, Gr2 Expressway Stakes, Gr2 Victory Stakes & Gr3 Hall Mark Stakes) and 5 placings (including the Listed Luskin Star Stakes & Listed Darby Munro Stakes) from 20 starts for $1,166,625 earnings. Music Magnate was a NZ$45,000 yearling consigned by Westbury Stud at the 2013 NZB National Yearling Sales Series. His next major target is likely to be the Gr2 Expressway Stakes at Rosehill in early February.
