Busted Tycoon is crowned the Queen of Galway and writes history...
What a tough and admirable filly, she now truly deserves a holiday! Racing Post, 5.08.13

... by winning three races at the Galway Festival, the last two less than 24 h apart.

Yesterday afternoon Busted Tycoon (4yo f by Marju ex Khatela) showed toughness and determination to win her third start in 5 days under Champion jockey Ruby Walsh.  After two easy wins on the flat when ridden by Fran Berry and S. Shortall earlier in the week, she had to dig deep to get up to win after making a mistake at the last hurdle. On officially heavy but drying out and hence sticky ground and a weight of 11st 9, it was a big task to turn out less than 24 hours after her win the previous evening. However, under a competent and confident ride from the Champion jockey, she answered every call and got up to win by  half a lenght. This was her sixth win in succession. She was received by thunderous applause of an appreciative Galway crowd.

Mission accomplished!
