Tiz the Law - Sloppy Track Performances:

11-30-2019 THE KENTUCKY JOCKEY CLUB - 8.5f - Came in 3rd.

His only defeat of his career came on a sloppy track at Churchill Downs. It is important to note though, that he was off the wire by only 2 lengths behind Silver Prospector and Finnick the Fierce. It was not as if he folded entirely because of the surface. He was also boxed in and found room at the top of the stretch but the late kick only remained steady.

Trainer: Barclay Tagg

Jockey: Manny Franco


8/8/19 – MSW at Saratoga, 6.5f, 1st. Stalked the lead. FORWARD.

10/5/19 – Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont, 8f, 1st. Mid-pack to 3/4 pole. FORWARD.

11/30/19 – Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club, 8.5f, 3rd. Mid-pack to 3/4 pole. FORWARD

2/1/20 – Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes, 8.5f, 1st. Forward to the ¾ pole. FORWARD.

3/28/20 - Grade 1 Florida Derby, 9f, 1st. Forward to the 3/4 pole. FORWARD.

6/20/20 - Grade 1 Belmont Stakes, 9f, 1st. Forward to the 3/4 pole. FORWARD.

Has shown that he prefers to be in the the top flight of the pack, just off of the pace.

Best position to be in for the Derby, however there are two concerns. The first being that he must secure an appropriate gate that will allow him to get that position from the onset. The second concern is that he has never seen any race where there were more horses in front of him than behind him. With the chaos of a 20 horse field, he will not necessarily have the ease of securing that singular position.
