Tizahit (by Tiznow), under a patient Prado, took over from pacesetting longshot Oh Diane inside the three-sixteenth pole and easily outfinished Protesting to win the Grade 2, $200,000 Demoiselle by one length. It was 3 3/4 lengths back to Fuzzy Britches in third.
Tizahit sat third early on while Oh Diane set the pace stalked by Fuzzy Britches. At the half-mile pole, Tizahit moved into second, but Prado waited to ask the filly to run until they straightened away in the stretch. Despite drifting out some in the lane, Tizahit was never threatened by Protesting as she covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1:53.09.
Tizahit, a daughter of Tiznow, is owned by Jim and Susan Hill and trained by George Weaver.
