“It (winning the Stakes over 1600m) is a great feeling. She means a lot to us, this mare,” Hahn told .

“She was the first metro winner for the partnership and she was the first winner for when I started working for Rex.

“So it's great that she wins today.”

Doing well to fend off on Zing for and win on the line, Tycoon Evie will now enjoy a break after notching her first win from three starts this preparation.

“She'll go for a spell. I'm not sure what we'll do with her, but she definitely won't be racing for a while here,” Lipp said.
