Spendthrift Farm's newly acquired stallion prospect Tizway came out of his recent Whitney (G1) triumph in great order according to trainer James Bond, and the grand-looking son of Tiznow will be pointed for the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). Tizway became a millionaire with his impressive Whitney score at Saratoga. Prior to that, he was awesome in victory in the coveted Met Mile (G1) at Belmont.

“We're happy to hear from Mr. Bond that Tizway came out of the Whitney in great condition,” said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift Farm General Manager. “For him to follow up his stellar Met Mile victory with a win over another great field in the Whitney (G1), one would have to say there is no finer older horse in the country.”

Tizway backed up his career-best 113 Beyer in the Met Mile with a 111 Beyer in the Whitney. He also impressively captured the Kelso (G2) last fall at Belmont.

Campaigned by owner William Clifton Jr., Tizway will retire to Spendthrift at the end of the year and will stand stud in 2012. His next start could come in either the Woodward (G1) at Saratoga or Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) at Belmont before the Breeders' Cup.
