At Clifford Park in Toowoomba, Woodside Park Stud's Gr2-winning and champion Victorian stallion Written Tycoon (Iglesias-Party Miss, by Kenmare) added a stakes race success when 5YO mare Sexy Eyes (Written Tycoon-Hidden Savings, by Secret Savings) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $150,000 Listed Toowoomba Weetwood (1200m). In a tightly packed affair that emulated the charge of the Light Brigade to the turn, both favourites Mashani Hustler and Mr Marbellouz were well placed to win, however while the former poked through to be a strong chance heading towards the furlong pole, unfancied Tycoon Ace appeared a chance to win until Sexy Eyes hit top gear to race away for a commanding victory. Sexy Eyes improved her record to 6 wins (including January’s Gr3 Belle of the Turf Stakes) and 5 placings from 14 starts for $375,720 in earnings.
