Tiz the Law favored in Saturday's $1 million Belmont S. (G1)
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
Constitution's multiple Grade 1 winner Tiz the Law drew post 8 for the $1 million Belmont S. (G1) on Saturday. 

The bay colt, owned by Sackatoga Stables, will face nine foes in this year's first leg of the reworked Triple Crown. He'll be ridden once again by Manny Franco, who has been aboard for all five of Tiz the Law's races, save his debut at Saratoga last August.

The Belmont was shortened to 1 1/8-miles for this year's renewal, the same distance of the March 28 Florida Derby, which Tiz the Law won by 4 1/4-lengths. He has also collected wins in the Champagne S. (G1) and Holy Bull S. (G3), and sports an overall record of 4-0-1 in five starts, with earnings of $945,300.

"He came out of the workout good," trainer Barclay Tagg said of Tiz the Law's June 15 breeze. "His legs look good. His attitude is good. He's eating great. We've been very lucky with him." 

Tiz the Law is just one of three stakes winners and seven stakes horses for Constitution, who is currently the leading Second-Crop sire with nearly $1.8 million in progeny earnings. Besides Tiz the Law, the WinStar stallion will be represented on Saturday at Belmont by the colt Venezuelan Hug in the Pennine Ridge S. (G2) and the filly Glass Ceiling in the Acorn S. (G1).
