The TBQA Committee is proud to announce the 2020 Champion Broodmare – Rezonet (dam of Tyzone)

Tyzone (pictured) (2013 g by Written Tycoon) 9 starts in 2019/20 for 1(1) – 0 – 1 A$250,875

Rezonet began her racing career with Gai Waterhouse in Sydney and after two mediocre starts in NSW she headed to North Queensland to the stables of Janelle Ryan.

Under the care of Ryan, Rezonet put together three straight wins before being retired with the race record of nine starts for 3 wins.

Rezonet, by the Champion Broodmare Sire Hussonet, headed to the breeding barn and her first three foals produced two winners including the very handy Five Stars, the winner of 10 races.

Fourth foal to race is the 2020 Stradbroke Champion Tyzone.

Tyzone has started 43 times for 17 wins including three Stakes, four seconds and three thirds with his most notable performances :

Winning the 2019 Listed 1200m Goldmarket Handicap on the Gold Coast

Winning the 2019 Group 3 BRC Sprint at Doomben over 1350 metres

A second placing in the 2019 Group 1 Stradbroke

Winning the 2020 Group 1, 1400m Stradbroke at Eagle Farm.

Like his dam Rezonet, Tyzone started his racing career in North Queensland winning four of his first six starts with the highlight so far being the victory in Australia’s time honoured Group 1, 1400 metre Handicap for the Gold Coast’s Edmond’s racing stable.

Rezonet has the breeding record of five foals to race, for three winners including the Group 1 winner Tyzone.

To date, Tyzone has amassed prizemoney totalling A$1,286,500 and it’s for these outstanding performances that Rezonet is the 2019/20 Queensland Broodmare Of The Year.

 Rezonet is owned by Mr Brian Smith of Waylon J Stud.
