It Tiz Well Survives Three-Way Duel in Delaware Oaks

By Jim Dunleavy
Tommy Town Thoroughbreds California shipper It Tiz Well had to work for it, but she won a three-horse stretch battle by a half-length in the Grade 3 Delaware Oaks on Saturday.

Based in California with trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, It Tiz Well is now 4 for 8. The $300,000 Delaware Oaks is her second stakes win; she traveled to Oaklawn Park in March to win the Grade 3 Honeybee.

It Tiz Well came into the Oaks off a nightmare trip in the Grade 2 Summertime Oaks, a race in which she had to be steadied repeatedly and finished fifth, beaten 2 1/2 lengths.

A daughter of Arch owned by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds, It Tiz Well paid $3.60 in the six-horse Oaks. She was timed for 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.55. Her bankroll now sits at $466,840.

Proud and Fearless, who was fractious in the gate, went to the front early. She was joined from the outside on the far turn by the winner. Actress, the second wagering choice, made a nice bid to contention from last on the far turn to challenge three wide outside the leaders entering the stretch.

Actress dropped back a bit in upper stretch after she and Proud and Fearless simultaneously sandwiched It Tiz Well between horses, but was coming on again at the wire. At the finish, It Tiz Well held sway between horses under jockey Drayden Van Dyke, and Proud and Fearlesss held off Actress by a head for second.

“She broke sharp and to be honest, she put us in a perfect spot, just off the lead,” Van Dyke said. “The 2 horse [Proud and Fearless] was going nice and easy with her ears pricked, so I did not want her to get too far away from me. But my horse was nice and relaxed the whole way and she kicked home very well.”
