Lizza To Be Honored at Saratoga

On Saturday, August 13 at Saratoga Race Course, The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) will hold a special winner’s circle ceremony at noon to present the trophy as the leading owner for Belmont Park’s spring meet to Viane Lizza on behalf of her late husband, Carl Lizza.

 

In addition, there will be a special video tribute to Lizza, who bred and raced horses on the NYRA circuit for more than 30 years. At the time of his death on July 8 at the age of 73, Lizza was New York’s top owner with 31 victories, including Street Game’s victory in the Grade 3 Hill Prince on June 18. The leading owner in New York in 2004 and 2005, Lizza’s Flying Zee Stable was among the circuit’s top 10 owners from 2006-2010.


Lizza, who purchased Highcliff Farm in Delanson, N.Y. in 1989, campaigned dozens of stakes winners, notably Wayward Lass, who won the Grade 1 Mother Goose and Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks en route to an Eclipse Award as the nation’s top 3-year-old filly in 1981.


Lizza’s Flying Zee Stable also campaigned multiple stakes winner Cosmonaut, who won the 2006 and 2007 Arlington Handicaps, becoming the first horse since Round Table (1958-59) to take consecutive editions of the race, and Noble Nashua, who in 1981 won the Marlboro Cup, the Dwyer, Jerome, Swaps, and Whirlaway Stakes. Other stakes winners included Key Contender, Screen King, Thunder Achiever, I Lost My Choo, Golden Commander and Kevin’s Decision.
