Tiz a Slam tastes victory in $250,000 Cup and Saucer S.
Sunday, October 23, 2016
Tiz a Slam's second foray into stakes company resulted in a handy 1 3/4-length win in the $250,000 Cup and Saucer S. Saturday afternoon at Woodbine for the 2-year-old Tiznow colt, who was making just his fourth lifetime start.

Tiz a Slam is one Tiznow's 12 stakes horses this year, led by Fourstardave H. (G1) winner Tourist, who is scheduled to make his next start in two weeks in the Breeders' Cup Mile (G1).

The Cup and Saucer was Tiz a Slam's first try at the 1 1/16-mile distance. Following an alert break, Eurico Da Silva let bay colt settle back several lengths off the pace. Moving very smoothly, he suddenly accelerated outside the quarter pole, coming four-wide into the stretch to challenge for the lead. 

In less than a sixteenth of a mile, Tiz a Slam put away the early leaders and kept to task late to cover the distance in 1:43.95 on a “good” turf course.

"I was afraid I had moved a little bit too early, but he was just on the gallop," said da Silva. "He was making the lead just galloping and he's a very nice horse." 

Trainer Attfield noted after the race that the $250,000 Coronation Futurity, a 1 1/8-mile main track event on Nov. 13, might be next in line for Tiz a Slam.
 
"Originally, I didn't want to race this horse too much this year as he's such a big colt, but he's proven me incorrect in some of those aspects," said Attfield. "He's so well balanced and so easy on himself there's a possibility if the weather is right and the track is right that he could be there, but I'll need to talk to the owners about that."

Tiz a Slam broke his maiden in his debut on Woodbine's main track, then took an open allowance race on the turf before being beaten just three lengths in the Sept. 18 Summer S. (G2), also on the grass. With Saturday's win, the Chiefswood Stable homebred is 3-0-0 and has earned $193,669.
