Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC’s It Tiz Well Earns Second Win
It Tiz Well ran third in her career bow here Oct. 28 and romped by 10 lengths Dec. 18 at Los Alamitos, earning a “TDN Rising Star” badge in the process. A respectable second behind stablemate and fellow Rising Star Unique Bella (Tapit) in the GII Santa Ynez S. over track and trip Jan. 8, the $230,000 KEESEP buy was made the 3-5 favorite dropping into this spot. Pressing frontrunner Diamondinthecenter (Gemologist) from second through a :21.99 quarter and :44.73 half, It Tiz Well drew on even terms with that one turning for home and started to assert her superiority at the eighth pole, drawing clear to a 3 3/4-length score. It Tiz, a half to Canadian champion and MGSW Solid Appeal (Successful Appeal), is responsible for a juvenile Ghostzapper filly named End of Now who sold for the same price as the winner at KEESEP, and foaled a filly from the final crop of Scat Daddy last spring before visiting City Zip. Lifetime Record: GSP, 4-2-1-1, $106,840. O-Tommy Town Thoroughbreds LLC; B-Allen & Susan Branch (KY); T-Jerry Hollendorfer.
