Bourbonize charges home to take the Northern Spur S.


Sunday, April 13, 2014
Tiz Wonderful's Bourbonize stamped himself as an up-and-coming 3-year-old with a come from behind victory in the $100,000 Northern Spur S. April 12 at Oaklawn Park (VIDEO). This was the first stakes win for the dark bay trained by Kellyn Gorder for Bourbon Lane Stable.

Stuck in traffic for the first half of the one mile contest, Bourbonize went four wide around the second turn to find running room. Once clear, he responded with a burst to roll by the leaders in deep stretch, winning by a neck in 1:38.09 on a fast track.

The Northern Spur victory, worth $60,000, boosted Bourbonize's career earnings to $151,058. He has won three of five lifetime outings.

Bred in Kentucky by Troy Rankin and Joe Davis out of the Halo's Image mare Brown Eyes, Bourbonize was a $40,000 buy as a yearling at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July sale.

Tiz Wonderful has topped the $1 million mark in progeny earnings this year and is a top-five Third Crop sire, proving to be an exceptional value for his $7,500 stud fee.
