Santa Anita: Smart run from Tiz Argent


Tiz Argent got an ideal ride from jockey Garrett Gomez to win Friday's third race over 1 1-4 miles on turf, the 4-year-old colt's longest race.

Tiz Argent ($4.80) stalked pacesetter Control Seeker for the first six furlongs, took the lead on the turn and won by 2 1-2 lengths over 7-1 Interpatation. Control Seeker, the 3-1 third choice, was eased through the stretch and finished last of seven.

Tiz Argent was timed in 2:00.94. Trained by John Sadler, Tiz Argent wore blinkers for the first time on Friday. The colt has won 3 of 8 starts; Friday's race ended a three-race losing streak that included a fifth in the California Cup Mile at Hollywood Park in October.
