Tiz Wonderful gets another winner, first stakes horse on same day


Saturday, August 04, 2012
Spendthrift Farm's top-10 first crop sire had another solid day in his young stallion career with his third maiden winner, this one at Delaware Park, as well as his first stakes-placed runner at Mountaineer Park.

Tiz Wonderful's runners have topped the $100,000 mark in earnings, putting him in the top 10 among all North American freshman sires. The 8-year-old stallion, who stood the 2012 season for $12,500, was an undefeated 2-year-old himself, with wins in the Kentucky Jockey Club S. (G2) and Iroquois S. (G3).

A G's Wonderful took a field of maiden males gate-to-wire in the five furlong dash at Delaware Park, winning his career debut by length for his owners See You Stable and Richard Vermillion. The Kentucky bred was purchased for his connections by his trainer Dale Capuano at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic October sale. The chestnut colt is out of Twilights Prayer, a two-time winner of the Spruce Fir H. at Monmouth Park.

In West Virginia Saturday afternoon, Scammony, who broke her maiden first time out June 21 at Churchill Downs, finished second in the $100,000 Mountaineer Juvenile Fillies, beaten less than a length for the win. The dark bay filly is the leading earner for her sire and is owned by Gold Mark Farm LLC, who bought her for $85,000 at the 2011 Keeneland September yearling sale.
