Miss Tizzynow exits key race

Email

The keen competition Miss Tizzynow faced in last month’s Appalachian Stakes at Keeneland could make her dangerous in the St. Georges, a $55,000 overnight stakes for 3-year-old turf fillies going 1 1/16 miles at Delaware Park.

Although Miss Tizzynow, trained by Graham Motion, finished seventh in the 12-horse Appalachian, two fillies she faced that day, including the horse who finished just ahead of her in sixth, have already returned to win stakes.

Ruterienne, fourth in the Applachian, came back to win the Sugar Plum Time at Belmont Park with an 87 Beyer Speed Figure.

Even more impressively, sixth-place Applachian finisher Swingit returned May 4 to win the $171,150 Edgewood at Churchill Downs, earning a 93 Beyer.

Other threats in the St. Georges are New Edition, a Larry Jones filly who boasts the best last-race Beyer (89) in the field; Ethan’s Car, who most recently ran second to the highly talented Street Sounds at Pimlico; and Bit of Whimsey, who wired a group of maidens as the odds-on favorite at Aqueduct.
