Unkind cut serves tyrannize well

Unfortunate but necessary surgery has brought out the best in the O’Reilly three-year-old Tryannize. He showed promise with two seconds in his first three starts before Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien had him gelded and he has since won consecutive races.

He was successful first-up at Bendigo before victory over 1200 metres at Flemington this afternoon under Ben Melham. “We had a pretty leisurely tempo up front,” he said. “I was worried about him hitting the front too early – he gave me the impression he might just wait a little bit. I kept him together for as long as I could and then let him run over the top of them late.”

Tyrannize was a $155,000 Karaka purchase by O’Brien out of WS’s Premier line-up last year. He is the first foal of the Listed Northland Breeders’ Stakes winner Queen Sabeel, a daughter of Savabeel.
