Dec 11, 2014

Trained by the in-form Bjorn Baker, Music Magnate came into today’s race after a solid debut 2nd at Newcastle.

Stripping fitter today Music Magnate sat just off the speed before unleashing a strong sprint in the straight to easily account for Kipling by 1.5 lengths with Kind Heart a further 0.2 lengths away in 3rdplace.

A $45,000 purchase from the New Zealand Bloodstock National Sale Music Magnate is the second winner by Written Tycoon for the Baker stable, his first winner Hanwritten was sold for a hefty six figure sum to Hong Kong after a good debut victory at Newcastle.

Music Magnate’s victory was also a triumph for NSW Breaking in and Pre Training outfit Cobbitty Lodge who broke in the horse and race him in partnership.

Cobbitty Lodge have also enjoyed good success with Written Tycoon having raced Hanwritten with Baker and also Group 3 winner Trump, a galloper also on sold for healthy profit to Hong Kong.
