has hips 34, 96, and 119 selling in the Saratoga Select Yearling Sale this August. Good start for this guy.
Was he the last American horse to go to Japan?
Ran his Met Mile in 1:32 4/5
I think he could have held off Drosselmeyer in the Classic, of course always by a head. Just like Tiznow. I want to watch Tiznow and Tizway in the breeding shed, I see good things!
Tizway will miss Classic due to injury EmailPrintComments 2 By David Grening Daily Racing Form Archive Trainer James Bond believed Tizway was "an unbelievable racehorse" and was champing at the bit to show the rest of the world just how unbelievable at next week's Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs. He won't get that opportunity. Tizway's career came to an abrupt end Tuesday when he was diagnosed with a strain of the suspensory ligament of his left foreleg that will force him out of the Breeders' Cup. He will now be retired to stud at B. Wayne Hughes's Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky. "The saddest part of it all is I had one more step on the ladder to show everybody this is an unbelievable race horse," Bond said by phone Tuesday from Saratoga. "Hopefully, his foals turn out to be half of what he is." The injury was detected Tuesday following Tizway's regular two-mile gallop at Saratoga, one day in advance of his final workout for the Breeders' Cup. After standing in a tub of ice in his stall as he normally does following his morning training, Tizway was found to have some heat and swelling in his left foreleg. An ultrasound revealed the strain. "I could give him two months off and he'd be okay," Bond said. "Unfortunately, the Breeders' Cup is next week." Tizway on Monday was pre-entered for the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic, where a victory would have most likely cemented Horse of the Year honors for the 6-year-old son of Tiznow. Earlier this year, Tizway won the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park and the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational at Saratoga. Bond had planned to run Tizway in the Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on Oct. 1, but was forced to miss that race due to a temperature the week before. Tizway missed very little training time and even shipped to Belmont Park for a one-mile workout over the main track on Oct. 12. "This horse has been magnificent, I do mean magnificent," Bond said. "He was training so I good. I thought I was so smart getting that work in at Belmont. I loved the way he came out of it, he was going to go three-quarters [Wednesday], put him on a truck on Monday, and hopefully kick butt on Saturday." Tizway, owned by Bond's long-time client William Clifton Jr., retires with a record of 7-1-5 from 20 starts and career earnings of $1,359,274. Tizway suffered from several infirmities in his career, the most serious being a broken wing bone in his foot. But since overcoming that last year, he won the Grade 2 Kelso in October 2010 before finishing fifth as the second choice in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. This year, he finished third in the Gulfstream Park Handicap and the Charles Town Classic before his dynamic victory in the Metropolitan Handicap, where his final time of 1:32.90 was the second-fastest clocking in the 118-year history of the Met Mile. He followed that up with a three-length victory in the Grade 1 Whitney Invitational at Saratoga on Aug. 6, which, unfortunately, turned out to be his swan song.
He will now be retired to stud at B. Wayne Hughes’s Spendthrift Farm in Kentucky.
Unreal...next...
Seems on top of handicap division
DRF.com: Tizway, a leading contender for Horse of the Year, in all likelihood will miss next Saturday's Jockey Club Gold Cup after spiking a temperature, forcing him to miss a workout, trainer James Bond said Friday. "I'd say its 99 percent he's not running,'' Bond said. "He did not train this morning." Bond said he will attempt to train Tizway to the Breeders Cup Classic. Tizway has won the Metropoltan Handicap and Whitney
  • DeadHeat · They had better find an alternative prep for him, because I can't see him going into the BCC as a serious horse when he hasn't had a race since the Whitney. If he went to from the Whtney to the Classic that would be a 3 month layoff. · 1095 days ago
I like Stay Thirsty. Hope my boy does well
jcgc is pretty much a one turn race. tizway did well in it a few years ago, he can excel againg this season. classic is a full 2 turn event. can tizway handle and excel in a 2 turn 10f race? he looks to me to be a bc dirt mile standout.
Nice breeze in his first official work since the Whitney. Saratoga 8/24/11 Dirt training 4F 49.69 Breezing Rank 9/15
I know he won, but that was not a good race. Very slow. Not impressed.

  • AmbitiousD · 113 Beyer in the Met Mile, 111 in the Whitney. He's looking good for the Jockey Gold Cup, and maybe the BCC. As a reference, it looks like Blind Luck ran a 106 beyer in the Del Handicap. I still think she would stomp on Tizway though · 1140 days ago
  • timgsmith10 · I have no doubt B.L and HDG would have won the whitney by 3-5 lengths. · 1140 days ago
am i going too far by saying that he is the best in american racing so far this year??
If Tizway wins the Whitney is he #1 Older horse in America?
  • mrsmaryzinke · He could be, depending on if he beats a good field in another excellent time, as he did in his Met Mile win. The Whitney would only be his 4th. race this year, with a win and a very close third in two mile races, and managing to do well in the sloppy bullpen of the 9f. Charles Town Classic, finishing third, in a race with all graded stakes winners if I remember correctly. He still would not be safely in the lead of the division, even with a win, unless he smashes a record. · 1157 days ago
  • DeadHeat · It's not gonna be easy smashing Laywer Ron's record, but I would say he would take the lead. No othe horse has won two grade ones in a row, so that stat alone should put him on top. The field is coming up fairly solid. He should be facing Sidney's Candy, Rail Trip, Apart, Giant Oak amoung others. · 1157 days ago
i dont see any horse of the year material.. not good enough racing... i think it will go to a filly like blind luck or havre this year
Here's your HOY folks, writing this on (looks at watch) 7/11 11:11.
Tizway's Beyer of 113 is the highest of 2011 at a mile or more ... who can tell me which horse has the highest overall this year?
  • xMystix · On the Daily Racing Form, it's a bit confusing. In the column Main Track: Up to One Mile, it shows Big Drama having 120 for a 6f race back in January at Gulfstream, but in the column Main Track: More than One Mile, it shows the filly Havre de Grace with a 108 in a race of 1 1/16 miles at Oaklawn Park back in April. Tizway is listed uner the column under Main Track: Up to a Mile, and not the other column. If one asks which horse has the highest Beyer, that would be Big Drama, but he got that at 6f, and not at a route distance. So it's a bit confusing as to which horse has the actual highest overall this year. · 1209 days ago
Tizway much the best in the Met Mile! Whoot!
My bias makes me like this horse. His races at 7-8F make me love this horse.
