Big Tiz Drills Hollywood Oaks Bullet

Big Tiz, stakes-placed at Hollywood Park three times, seeks to break through with her first added-money victory in the $150,000 Grade II Hollywood Oaks at 1 1/16 miles on Cushion Track Saturday.

 

Big Tiz, a Kentucky-bred daughter of Tiznow, demonstrated her readiness by working five furlongs in a bullet 58.60 seconds Sunday. She placed second in the Grade III Railbird Stakes May 21 after finishing second in the Grade I Hollywood Starlet and third in the Sharp Cat Stakes last fall. Patrick Valenzuela will again ride the filly for trainer Mark Glatt.

 

Other probable starters include Rumor, Love Theway Youare and Zazu.

Love Theway Youare will be ridden by Alonso Quinonez for owner-trainer Myung Kwon Cho. The filly finished fourth in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico May 20 after defeating older females at 1 1/16 miles earlier in the Spring/Summer meet.

 

Rumor comes off a sharp six-furlong victory over Cushion Track May 28, her second victory in four starts for trainer Richard Mandella. Victor Espinoza will ride the Indian Charlie filly for the first time.

 

Trainer Bob Baffert said he might enter one of the trio of American Lady, Artuya or May Day Rose. “One or none,” he said.

 

Nereid, winner of two in a row over turf for John Shirreffs, is also considered a possible entrant.
