Tizway sires $250K yearling at Saratoga


Monday, August 11, 2014

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.
