Tiznow's Grade 1 winner Strong Mandate was weighted at 122 pounds, just four from the highweight, on The Jockey Club’s 2013 Experimental Free Handicap, released Jan. 29 by The Jockey Club.
The Free Handicap, published annually since 1935, is a weight-based assessment of the previous year’s leading 2-year-olds.
Strong Mandate, trained by D. Wayne Lukas for Robert Baker and William Mack, won the Hopeful S. (G1) last summer at Saratoga and also finished third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1). He is currently training at Oaklawn Park.
