Tiznow to Stand for $30,000

Two-time Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Tiznow, who will stand his first season at stud next year, has had his stud fee set at $30,000 live foal, payable Sept. 1.

"We've had 75 (mare applications) submitted already," Duncan Taylor of Taylor Made Farm said Friday afternoon. "A lot of people we've talked to thought he would stand for $50,000. I think at $30,000 he will be a very popular horse.

Tiznow will stand at Bill Casner and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky.

WinStar, in partnership with Taylor Made, bought a half-interest in the 4-year-old son of Cee's Tizzy -- Cee's Song, by Seattle Song. He is also owned by Michael Cooper and Cee's Stable, the latter a partnership of Cooper and Kevin Cochrane and Pamela Ziebarth. Cochrane and Ziebarth are the children of the colt's breeder, the late Cecilia Straub-Rubens.

"He was a good racehorse and he's a good outcross to a lot of mares," Taylor said. "He's also a good looking horses, as evidenced by how well his dam and sister sold."

At the recent Keeneland November sale, Cee's Song, carrying a full sibling to Tiznow, was purchased by Dromoland Farm for $2.6 million. His full sister was bought by John Ferguson Bloodstock as agent for Sheikh Mohammed for $950,000.

Tiznow, last year's Horse of the Year and a serious candidate for top honors again this year, retired with eight wins in 15 starts and earnings of $6,427,830.
