Del Mar, CA (August 30, 2018)-Slew’s Tiznow’s three-year-old son Mikes Tiznow captured a Del Mar open maiden special race going wire-to-wire by two and a quarter lengths. Coming off a thirteen month layoff Mikes Tiznow dominated the field of males including progeny from Curlin, Union Rags, Giant’s Causeway, More Than Ready and Speighstown.
Mikes Tiznow “sped to the early lead, angled in and set the pace a bit off the rail then inside on the turn, kicked away in the stretch and won clear under urging”, stopping the timer in 56.2 for the five panel turf race.
Bred in California by Eagle Ridge Racing LLC, Mikes Tiznow was a $34,000 yearling purchase and is out of Babes Bridge It, by Maria’s Mon. He has now earned $47,145 from his two lifetime starts and also picked up an additional $17,000 from the Cal-bred bonus program.
Slew’s Tiznow has had three winners in the last week including Powder who won a six furlong Del Mar allowance race on August 26th.
