WinStar offers Tiznow season to any filly or mare that wins BC Classic
Friday, September 30, 2011

On the 10-year anniversary of Tiznow becoming the only horse to win back-to-back Breeders' Cup Classics, WinStar Farm is offering a complimentary breeding season to Tiznow for any filly or mare that wins the 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) on Saturday, Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs.

WinStar, which became a new corporate partner of the Breeders' Cup in 2011, is hoping to encourage some of the top fillies and mares in training to follow in Zenyatta's footsteps by contesting Saturday's featured Classic in prime time, while also celebrating the anniversary of Tiznow's feat.

“WinStar is thrilled to be involved with racing's championship event, and we believe this industry has an interest in matching the best horses against each other in the Classic,” said Elliott Walden, President & CEO at WinStar. “The last few years, we've had the treat of watching some special fillies and mares in racing, and this year is no different. Nothing would be a greater honor to Tiznow's accomplishment 10 years ago than seeing the best fillies and mares face the best boys in front of a prime-time national TV audience. WinStar is offering a free Tiznow breeding season to any filly or mare that can win it.”

Tiznow, who stood the 2011 breeding season for a fee of $75,000 live foal, won the 2000 and 2001 Breeders' Cup Classics before retiring to stud at WinStar as a two-time champion racehorse. In the breeding shed he's been equally as impressive, siring Breeders' Cup champion Folklore from his first crop and amassing eight Grade 1 winners along the way, including leading 2011 older horse Tizway.

“We are very encouraged by WinStar's generous offer to owners of potential female Classic starters to win a free season to the one of Breeders' Cup's most popular champions, Tiznow,” said Carter Carnegie, Breeders' Cup Senior Vice President of Sponsorship and Business Development. “We have seen the enormous amount of interest that a great female like Zenyatta can bring to our industry by nearly winning back-to-back Classics.”

If a filly or mare wins this year's Breeders' Cup Classic, WinStar will award the winning owner the free breeding season that will be valid for that filly or mare for either 2012 or 2013.
