Horse of the Year Tiznow at New Home

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. WinStar, in partnership with the Taylor family's Taylor Made Farm, bought a half-interest in the 4-year-old son of Cee's Tizzy and will stand him with fellow owners Michael Cooper and Cee's Stable.

Duncan Taylor said WinStar will be the home for Tiznow rather than Taylor Made because both parties want to stand a strong stallion alongside Kris S. Years back, Taylor Made brought Kris S. from Florida to stand at Prestonwood Farms (now WinStar). Taylor Made still retains five shares in the stallion. Taylor Made/WinStar Ventures also will not syndicate its interest in Tiznow.

Tiznow, who was produced from the Seattle Song mare Cee's Song and is a full brother to millionaire Budroyale, retires with eight victories from 15 starts and earnings of $6,427,830. In addition to his pair of Classic victories, he captured two other grade I stakes: this year's Santa Anita Handicap and the 2000 Super Derby in track-record time of 1:59.84 for 1 1/4 miles.
