Albany, CA (January 23, 2017)
More Power to Him picked up another Golden Gate Fields derby prep finishing second in Saturday’s California Derby. The sophomore son of Slew’s Tiznow has now placed in the Gold Rush Stakes and the California Derby with an allowance win in-between stakes; to give him two wins, a second and a third in his last four outings.
More Power to Him “made the winner work but wasn’t quite good enough, losing the 1 1/16-mile race by only three-quarters of a length. He was allowed to settle to the second turn, rallied four wide then swung out five wide into the stretch, rallied to the lead in mid-stretch, battled on late but could not stall the winner.”
More Power to Him has earned $72,593 from his six lifetime starts for breeder/owner Brett Mason.
Slew’s Tiznow is California’s leading second crop sire of 2016 and was California’s leading first crop sire of 2015.
A multiple stakes-winning, grade I-placed son of Tiznow—Hepatica, by Slewpy, Slew’s Tiznow retired with a 4-2-1 career line and earnings $321,100 from 14 starts. His record includes victories in the 2008 El Cajon and War Chant Stakes and a second in the 2007 Lane’s End Breeders’ Futurity (gr. I) for owner and breeder Joseph Lacombe Stable. He is standing for $2,500 in 2017.
