Tizway Expected to Work for BC Classic Thursday

Moments after Risky Rachel's victory in Saturday's Friendly Island Iroquois Stakes, trainer Jim Bond proclaimed Met Mile and Whitney winner Tizway "awesome" and on schedule for a planned start in the Grade 1, $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic on November 5 at Churchill Downs.

"Two-minute licked [Saturday] morning and we'll probably work five-eighths at Saratoga on Thursday," said Bond. "Wednesday maybe, but Thursday most likely. That will be his last major work, just something to keep him honest."

Bond added that Tizway would ship to Kentucky on Monday, October 31, and though he had not yet finalized transport for the 6-year-old son of Tiznow, he was pondering the horse's Halloween costume.

"He ships on Halloween, so I've got to put a mask on him," Bond joked. "Maybe I'll dress him as a gray horse."

Bond added Sunday that Risky Rachel emerged from her Iroquois victory in good order.
