It Tiz out to defend Megahertz title

It Tiz, a 5-year-old daughter of Tiznow, will be out to defend her title in the $75,000 Megahertz Stakes, a supporting feature Saturday for older fillies and mares at one mile on turf that attracted eight entrants.

 

Allen and Susan Branch’s It Tiz rallied to upset at 8-1 odds in last year’s Megahertz while defeating Lilly Fa Pootz by one-half length. Alonso Quinonez takes over the reins as trainer Mark Glatt’s bay mare attempts to put the skids on a five-race losing streak that dates back to the 2011 Megahertz. It Tiz is a winner of $260,183 from a 5-1-1 showing in 19 lifetime starts.

 

David Flores, who rode It Tiz last year, has taken the call on Wild Mia in this year’s renewal. Trained by Jerry Fanning for Rosemont Stud, Wild Mia is coming off a strong second at 28-1 odds in the Grade III Monrovia Stakes on Jan. 2. The 5-year-old gray mare owns a career record of 4-7-0 in 15 starts for earnings of $266,502.

 

The complete field for the Megahertz Stakes, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Equitana, Chantal Sutherland, 117; Pick and Pray, Edwin Maldonado, 117; It Tiz, Alonso Quinonez, 117; Burg Berg, Smith, 117; Celestial Kitten, Bejarano, 123; Imperialistic Diva, Rosario, 117; Vamo a Galupiar, Talamo, 117, and Wild Mia, David Flores, 123.
