Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
Silver Tycoon has given us two below par runs. He has had his time as a colt and the decision was made to geld him on the 28th of December. He was a little bit colicky in the evening after his gelding, but he has settled down now. He is a lovely horse; I am hoping gelding will allow him to fulfil his potential.

Raced over 1160m at Turffontein. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: Distance was too short and needs gelding to help him settle down and go over further.

December 11th, 2021
Raced over 1475m at the Vaal. Anthony Delpech post-race comment: He raced on the wrong side of the track with no cover and over raced. It was a very poor run.
