Tiz Miz Sue Ahead of Schedule

When trainer Steve Hobby put Cresran LLC’s Tiz Miz Sue back into serious training after a break, his immediate goal was a  defense of her win in the Azeri Stakes (G3) on March 16, but the Tiznow mare had other ideas. After working six furlongs in 1:13 3/5 Thursday, the 6-year-old mare is telling her trainer, she’s likely going to be ready for the $100,000 Bayakoa Stakes a month earlier on Feb. 16. The six furlong work comes one week after a sharp five furlong move in 1:01, the second fastest of 20 at the distance.

“I was planning on the Azeri, but all of her works have been spot on,” said Hobby. “She’s a lot fitter than I thought she’d be at this point. We’ll give her one more work before the race.”

Last year, Tiz Miz Sue finished second to the now retired Absinthe Minded in the Bayakoa before her first graded stakes victory in the Azeri. Following that race, she picked up three straight graded stakes placings when third in Apple Blossom Handicap (G1), second in the Obeah Stakes (G3) and second in the Delaware Handicap (G2) to champion Royal Delta. She has not started since finishing fifth in the Spinster Stakes (G1) at Keeneland last October.
