First foal is a filly for Breeders’ Cup (G1) winner Tourist
Thursday, January 11, 2018

WinStar Farm’s Tourist, Tiznow’s multiple Grade 1 winner who closed his racing career with a record-setting victory in the 2016 Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1), sired his first reported foal on the morning of Thursday, Jan. 11th when a bay filly was born at Endeavor Farm in Versailles, KY.

Bred by Corey and CJ Johnsen’s CJ Thoroughbreds, the filly is out of the stakes-placed and stakes-producing mare Blondz Away, a daughter of Skip Away out of the stakes-winning race mare Flo's Z Fury. Blondz Away has produced 2-year-old stakes winner Colonel Samsen.

“This is a very good-looking filly, and we are so excited to see that she looks so much like Tourist,” said Corey Johnsen. “The day I saw Tourist win the More Than Ready Mile convincingly in 2015 at Kentucky Downs, I knew I wanted to breed to him when I could. We have always been fans of (Tiznow) and his sons.”

A WinStar homebred by Tiznow, Tourist won the Fourstardave H. (G1) at Saratoga in 1:34.29 before finishing the season as one of the world’s best milers after his victory in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) at Santa Anita. He proved best over a world-class field of 14 in the prestigious event, outkicking champion Tepin and stopping the clock in 1:31.71. The final time established a new Breeders’ Cup record for the fastest Mile in the storied 33-year history of the event.

Campaigned by WinStar, Gary Barber, and Adam Wacthel, Tourist retired to stud in 2017 with career earnings of $2,170,340, making him the highest earner by Tiznow ever to retire to stud. He is out of the multiple stakes-producing Unbridled’s Song mare Unbridled Melody, dam of four stakes winners from five starters to date.

Tourist, whose stud career has been partnered on by Don Alberto Corporation, is set to stand his second season in 2018 for a fee of $12,500 S&N. For more information about Tourist, please contact Kyle Wilson, Liam O’Rourke, or Brittany Belbeck at 859-873-1717, or visit www.WinStarFarm.com.

Tiznow's Royal Son closes 2017 with huge effort in Prairie Bayou S.

Royal Son dominated the $50,000 Prairie Bayou S. Dec. 29 at Turfway Park, taking the lead at the top of the stretch and never looking back to win by 7-1/4 lengths. The 5-year-old son of Tiznow has been in great form of late; on Nov. 30 he set the track record for a mile over Turfway's Polytrack, 1:34.92. When the field was reduced to six from an original field of 14 due to adverse weather, Royal Son was sent off the 4-5 favorite. He stalked in third before making his bid, and drew away with authority to cover the 1 1/16-miles in 1:44.04, earning a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 106. “The scratches helped bring us closer to the rail, but I was pretty confident in how he would run anyway,” said winning trainer Kellyn Gorder. “He just loves this track. He looked so relaxed, and I was really happy to see that. He finished strong.” Also a winner of the 2015 John Battaglia Memorial S. in his first start at Turfway, Royal Son now has six wins, four seconds and two thirds from 22 starts and purse earnings of $321,605. Royal Son is out of the A. P. Indy mare Mama Nadine. He was bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm LLC and is owned by Ali Goodrich’s Sweet Home Stables and Mark Parkinson. As 2017 draws to a close, champion sire Tiznow crossed another personal milestone recently when his lifetime progeny earnings surpassed the $80 million mark. He'll be standing the 2018 season at WinStar for $50,000 stands and nurses.
