Tizway Prepares for Met Mile

Tizway, third in the 2010 Metropolitan Handicap, continued his preparations for this year’s renewal with a 1:01.71 five-furlong breeze over Saratoga’s Oklahoma training track Sunday morning.

 

“It was exactly what we wanted, and we plan to give him another workout next weekend,” said Jim Bond, who trains the 6-year-old son of Tiznow for William L. Clifton.

 

Victorious in the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap at Belmont last October, Tizway has made two starts in 2011, finishing third in both the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap on March 12 and in the Grade 1 Charles Town Classic on April 16.

 

Bond, who believes Tizway runs his best races in one-turn miles, was impressed with the horse’s performance in the Charles Town Classic, which was contested around three turns at 1 1/8 miles.

 

“He ran great,” said Bond. “The track was pretty soupy that night, and he lost his balance a little. He ran gallantly and he always tries hard.”
