HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Sackatoga Stable’s Tiz the Law breezed five furlongs Sunday at Gulfstream Park in preparation for a planned start in the $350,000 Holy Bull (G3) Feb. 1.
Trained Barclay Tagg shipped the Grade 1 stakes-winning 3-year-old son of Constitution from Palm Meadows Training Center, Gulfstream’s satellite training center in Palm Beach County, for the workout, which was timed in 1:01.55. New York-based jockey Manuel Franco came in for the breeze before returning to Aqueduct, where he rode the first-race winner.
“He got some distance under him and got a feel for the track, that’s all I wanted to do,” Tagg said. “He seemed to handle it all right.”
The breeze was his fourth since he finished third in the Nov. 30 Kentucky Jockey Club (G2).
“He does every right. He’s no problem at all to train,” said Tagg, who saddled Sackatoga Stable’s Funny Cide for victories in the 2003 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness Stakes (G1).
Tiz the Law won his first two starts before finishing third in the Kentucky Jockey Club, which was run over a sloppy, sealed racetrack at Churchill Downs. He debuted at Saratoga Aug. 8 with a 4 ½-length romp before capturing the Oct. 5 Champagne (G1) at Belmont by four lengths.
