Tiz the Law Breezes for Gr. iii Holy Bull
Monday, January 20, 2020
    HALLANDALE BEACH - Sackatoga Stable’s Tiz the Law breezed five furlongs Sunday at Gulfstream Park in preparation for a planned start in the $350,000, Gr. III Holy Bull on Feb. 1.

    Trainer Barclay Tagg shipped the Gr. 1 stakes-winning 3-year-old son of Constitution from Palm Meadows Training Center 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 Gr. II Kentucky Jockey Club.

    “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 and Preakness Stakes.

    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 on Aug. 8 with a 4 ½-length romp before capturing the Oct. 5 Gr. I Champagne at Belmont by four lengths.
