15/03/02 Last Tycoon's Son Sizzles in Return
Last Tycoon's classy gelding Bradshaw has made a triumphant return to the racetrack when he scored a great win in last Saturday's Group Three Australian Tie Company Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill.

Trained by record breaking trainer John Hawkes, Bradshaw was having his first start since a close up fifth to Keeper in the Group One Goodwood Handicap in Adelaide last year.

With Rod Quinn in the saddle the lightly raced six-year-old was handy throughout before hitting the front on the inside of the field and lengthening to beat Canny Fly by a half length.

The former brilliant juvenile Pembleton was third another three quarters of a length back.

Bradshaw, like Mahogany, Tycoon Lil, Lady Jakeo, Knowledge, O'Reilly and Fubu, is by the brilliant Last Tycoon.

A triple Group One winning son of Try Me Best, Last Tycoon will again be standing the 2002 season at Blue Gum Farm.

The attractive brown stallion is one of the most successful worldwide stallions standing in Victoria.

"Last Tycoon is the sire on no less than 18 Group One winners around the world," Blue Gum Farm's Principal Philip Campbell said.

"He is certainly performing in every possible way. As well as top performers on the track his sons are also doing well at stud and he's a promising broodmare sire as well."

One of the best locally performed gallopers out of a Last Tycoon mare is the brilliant mare Hill of Grace, a multiple Group One winner.

"Last Tycoon has been serving big books of mares and his yearlings have been selling up to $190,000 again this year.
