The first progeny by Tizway continue to light up the tote board at major auctions, as his lone offering at the Saratoga New York Bred Preferred Sale sold for $250,000 on August 10th, second highest-price of the entire venue.
Tizway is North America's leading freshman sire by yearling average. Six of his first crop have now sold, for an average of $225,833, best of any first-year stallion in the nation.
At Saratoga, the $250,000 filly was Hip 310, a bay beauty out of multiple stakes producer Free As Tristan, who sold to Hubert Guy, agent.
"She is a lovely filly--the best filly today anyway," Guy told the press afterwards. "She has a beautiful walk and really nice angles. And a great demeanor. It was a no-brainer...I was expecting to find something nice and I did."
Bred by Dixie Farm and consigned by Marshall Silverman, the Tizway yearling is a half sister to multiple stakes winner Amberjack ($292,855) and Grade 1 placed Associate ($301,229).
By Tiznow out of Bethany, by Dayjur, Tizway stood the 2014 season at Spendthrift for $25,000 live foal.
