Older Comments about Tiznow...

he always showed up and gave his all. The true heart of a champion!
Don't come any tougher then Tiznow, who raced 16 times,and hit the board 15. One of the best to come out of the gate.
"This year Tiznow, Tizbud, and Tizso each has an offspring entered in BC races. Has there ever been three full siblings all with offspring in the same Breeders' Cup before?" (from Bloodhorse.com)
this horse deserves to be rated so much higher. only two time winner of the Breeder's Cup Classic. he had some really stiff competition too.
Tiznow is a top 50 of all time no doubt. Only two time winner of the Breeder's Cup Classic.

  • cocoa2 · I can see Ghostzapper for sure. Maybe my list would be Invasor/Tiznow/Ghostzapper/Wise Dan/Curlin. Then maybe Zenyatta and the rest. · 460 days ago
  • RichChatter · Few horses in the last decade had as much heart as this guy. His Classics remain some of my favorite races. · 460 days ago
Pretty good looking son of Tiznow. Out of Horn's gray by Pass the Tab. Half brother to G1 winner Awesome Humor by Distorted Humor. http://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/restricted/pdf/tdn/tdn120523_1.pdf?CFID=65266606&CFTOKEN=37247550

Horrible how low this 2 time consecutive BC Classic winner and 2000 HOY is rated here.

  • travel_vic · some horses peak to be good in a narrow window, Unbridled did that...CONTINUITY of effort is needed for the mantle of greatness to be given out. · 764 days ago
Absolutely one of my favorites. All heart. Never quits.
Tiznow had one of the biggest hearts you will ever see in a racehorse!

I mean...all those Tiz' on the track these dayz, tiz making me tizzy !
A loyal brave Superstar and a good Sire. I am still wearing my Tiznow T-shirt. Yea! Love to my boy Tiznow.
The New England Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick was in search of something inspirational to encourage his losing football team. He showed his team a replay of the 2001 Breeders’ Cup Classic with Tiznow denying that year’s Arc winner, Sakhee, the victory. The Patriots went on to win the 2002 Super Bowl.

How is this horse not higher in the rankings? Tiznow has done what no other horse has been able to do, win not one but TWO BC Classics. These races werent against anything inferior, either. He gave us gutwrenching, mindblowing finishes and he still isn't garnering the respect he deserves. The people that said he was nothing as a racehorse grumbled after he proved them wrong. Then they said he wasn't going to be a sire... and he continues to prove them wrong. Tiznow you are everything a horse should be, and in my heart, deserving of AT LEAST a top 100 spot!
  • timgsmith10 · Ya Tiznow deserves respect. · 1134 days ago
  • ruffian75 · Yes, I also agree. And to think that he got his glory despite sidestepping the Triple Crown. That must be the key. If you don't run in the Triple Crown, you are penalized. Tiznow was, and is, a great horse. · 1133 days ago
Just watched the two classic win.I love a horse likke that who just won't give up.Those were two of the most exciting races I've ever seen and he did it against two great European champions
Tisnow really shined at the right time!
This guy was simply awesome in his - Refuse To Lose - BC wins. Even cooler that his offspring have proven to be such good runners. Sorry Curlin, it's going to be a long time before another wins back-to-back BC Classics...
