Darby Dan sale grad on his 'way' to Breeders’ Cup
RSS Feeds Monday, October 04, 2010
When Tizway ran away with the $250,000 Kelso H.-G2 at Belmont on Oct. 3, he just may have booked his ticket to Churchill Downs for the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.
 
The Darby Dan sales graduate took charge of the one-mile Kelso at the quarter pole, and increased his advantage down the lane, drawing off for a five-length victory in 1:34 2/5. Trainer H. James Bond told the media afterwards, “All in all, I couldn’t be happier…If everything continues to go well, we’ll look at the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. That’s Plan A right now.”
 
A son of Breeders’ Cup winner Tiznow out of a mare by Breeders’ Cup runner-up Dayjur, Tizway was bred in Kentucky by Whisper Hill Farm, and sold by Darby Dan at the 2006 Keeneland September Sale for $140,000. Racing for William L. Clifton Jr., he has now earned $453,274, with a record of 14-5-1-3. The Kelso was his inaugural stakes win, but he ran third in the 2010 Met Mile (G1) and the 2009 Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1).
 
Tizway is one of 12 stakes winners, six Graded winners this year for Darby Dan Sales. Only six other consignors have sold more Graded stakes winners on the season.
