Tiznow's Term of Art earns first graded win in Cecil B. DeMille (G3)
Sunday, November 27, 2016
Term of Art forged to the lead in the final sixteenth of a mile en route to his 1 1/4-length victory in Sunday's $100,000 Cecil B. DeMille S. (G3) at Del Mar.

The 2-year-old colt is the 72nd lifetime graded stakes winner for Tiznow after taking the one-mile contest. His progeny have earned over $5.7 million in 2016, and are sure to surpass last year's total of $5.8 million before year's end.

The DeMille, originally scheduled for the grass, was run on a tiring main track rated “good”. The circumstances suited Term of Art well, as he stalked in sixth about four lengths off the pace for much of the first five furlongs. Making a middle move into the far turn under Joe Talamo, he had to re-gather himself coming into the stretch. 

Vending Machine and Sword Fighter were head-to-head for the lead with a furlong to run, but Term of Art had all the momentum, and came flying by on the outside to win in style (VIDEO).

“He’s growing up,” said Talamo of the Calumet Farm runner. “The more this horse runs, the better he’s going to get. He’ll just improve as he goes along, as he matures. I was very impressed with him today. I think he’ll run on, too. He’ll run a mile and a quarter. He wasn’t blowing hard at all at the end of this today.”

With the win, Term of Art is 2-1-1 in five starts and has earned $111,105.

Pedigree Notes from the TDN:
Bred in Kentucky by Whisper Hill Farm, Term of Art is out of the  unraced Miles of Style, a full-sister to Grade 1 winner Mr. Sidney. Miles of Style sold for $575,000 at the 2011 Keeneland November sale in foal to Quality Road. Term of Art’s second dam is multiple Grade 1 winner Tomisue’s Delight, a full-sister to Horse of the Year Mineshaft out of another multiple Grade 1 winner, Prospector's Delite.
