Tiznow blue blood sparkles at Fair Grounds
Thursday, February 16, 2017
Tour de Force turned in his second straight commanding victory on Feb. 16 when the Tiznow colt tallied a 3 1/4-length victory in a one mile and 70 yard allowance at Fair Grounds. The versatile bay broke his maiden by a similar margin on the Fair Grounds lawn on Jan. 15.

Tour de Force completed the distance in 1:42.42, just a little more than a second off the track record, and earned a 92 Beyer Speed Figure.

“We’ll most likely keep him in allowance races right now,” said David Carroll, assistant to trainer Mark Casse. “He came out of the race well. There’s a race on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, going two turns on the main track that fits him. He’s still learning.” 

Owned by John Oxley, Tour de Force sold for $1.35 million at the 2014 Keeneland September Yearling sale. The Kinsman Farm-bred is out of the millionaire and six-time graded stakes winner Dream Supreme, who is also responsible for 2007 Hopeful S. (G1) winner Majestic Warrior.
