Tiz the Bomb blitzes foes by 14 lengths
July 3, 2021
Tiz the Bomb, Hit It a Bomb’s most expensive yearling of 2020, put on a dazzling display in his maiden special weight win Friday at Ellis Park, drawing off in the lane to finish 14 ¼-lengths ahead of the field.
The bay 2-year-old had the lead from the outset of the one-mile race, with Zip It Scotty applying token pressure for the first five furlongs. Tiz the Bomb began to distance himself midway on the turn and was in hand through the stretch to finish the “off-the-turf” race in 1:37.32.
The winner is owned by Phoenix Thoroughbreds, who purchased him for $330,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Select Yearlings sale.
Tiz the Bomb was bred by Spendthrift Farm and is out of the Tiznow mare Tiz the Key, who has a yearling by Free Drop Billy and a foal by Mor Spirit.
