Winning Rupert won his first five races in impressive fashion breaking Eagle Farm’s 1200m and 1300m track records in the process before his failure in the Magic Millions Guineas.
The son of Written Tycoon was a $67,500 purchase from the Magic Millions Gold Coast sale and amassed over $1million in earnings in his short ten month racing career.
