Tiznow Shows Championship Mettle for Second Year in Row

The eyes are the windows of the soul. That has been said many times, but on Oct. 27 the racing world saw proof of it. For the second year in a row, we witnessed the same fire being lit in the eyes of Tiznow. And for the second year in a row, we were provided a rare look into the soul of a Thoroughbred. And for the second year in a row, Tiznow has captured an Eclipse Award and become a champion.

It's a Slam Dunk for Point Given in Eclipse Voting

In a year without a lot of clear-cut favorites, Point Given is the lone unanimous choice in 2001 Eclipse Award balloting. The dual classic winner received top honors as champion 3-year-old male and is a finalist, along with Tiznow and Johannesburg, for Horse of the Year honors. Finalists in each of the Eclipse categories were announced Thursday.

He sits back at his desk, staring out the window and into his thoughts. "Right now, we're about as down as we've been in a long time. We don't have much here," the trainer remarks candidly. "Yeah, this is gonna be slow for a while." The stable hands carry out their duties quietly, though activity in a five-horse barn is decidedly minimal. The phone no longer rings off the hook. Reporters, once a constant, now chase stories elsewhere. There are very few hints, in fact, that just weeks ago, this was home to every trainer's dream.

Tiznow, whose victory in the 2001 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) for the second consecutive year placed him solidly in the running for a another Horse of the Year title, was shown to the public Monday, Nov. 26, at Bill Casner and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky.

In true classic fashion and eerily similar to last year's victory, Tiznow rallied stoutly in the lane to defeat Sakhee by a nose in the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I). This time however, he had to run down his rival, whereas a year ago he held off Giant's Causeway at Churchill Downs. He becomes the first horse in history to win back-to-back Classics.

Steve Haskin's Classic Report: Fantastic Sees the Light

Unlike his non-work last Friday, Fantastic Light lit up the Belmont track Tuesday, as he blazed five furlongs in :59 4/5 with jockey Frankie Dettori aboard, flying home his final quarter in :23 2/5 and galloping out a strong six furlongs in 1:12 3/5. Private clockers caught him a tick faster in :59 3/5. About an hour and a half later, Godolphin's other star, Sakhee, also showed more life, working his five furlongs in 1:01, with regular exercise rider Lee Roebuck up.

Another Wild Morning for Tiznow

Another Wild Morning for Tiznow

A change of scenery for Tiznow has not made life any easier for trainer Jay Robbins, as the defending Horse of Year had another of his eventful mornings Sunday, balking, kicking, backpeddling, and sidestepping his way around the track.

Tiznow Turns in Wild Work at Santa Anita

It took a while, but after 30 minutes of stopping, starting, wheeling, and ducking, Tiznow finally turned in a brilliant mile work in 1:35 3/5 at Santa Anita Thursday morning. Jockey Chris McCarron, who was aboard the defending Horse of the Year, timed him going seven-eighths from the three-eighths pole to a half-mile past the wire in 1:22.71, while Robbins and the clockers picked him up at the half-mile pole.

Steve Haskin's Classic Report: One Step Forward, Two Backward

Steve Haskin's Classic Report: One Step Forward, Two Backward

It seems for every step forward the Classic takes, it takes two steps backward. Last weekend, it took three steps backward, with the defeats of Albert the Great, Tiznow, and Skimming, the last two at the hands of 39-1 shot Freedom Crest. On the other hand, Aptitude's 10-length tour-de-force in the Jockey Club Gold Cup was a break-out race that catapulted the son of A.P. Indy right up to the head of the class.
