Royal Son wins the John Battaglia Memorial on Saturday at Turfway Park.

Champion and Hall of Fame racehorse Tiznow posted a stakes double on Saturday evening, as his aptly named Royal Son captured the John Battaglia Memorial Stakes at Turfway Park and Rebranded won the Curribot Handicap at Sunland Park.

Both stakes competitors represent a productive cross. According to Daily Racing Form’s SirePowered Results, runners by Tiznow won four races in the month of February. Three are out of mares by the pensioned A.P. Indy, a breed-shaping sire and prominent broodmare sire.

Royal Son races as a homebred for WinStar Farm, which stands Tiznow in Versailles, Ky. The colt recorded his second victory in five career starts in the Battaglia, posting a Beyer Speed Figure of 97. He is now a candidate for the Grade 3 Spiral Stakes on March 21 at Turfway, a race offering 50 Kentucky Derby qualifying points to the winner. Royal Son is out of the A.P. Indy mare Mama Nadine, herself a stakes-winning daughter of champion Countess Diana.

Rebranded scored his fourth stakes victory in the Curribot, earning a 94 Beyer for the win and pushing his career bankroll to $289,950. The colt, bred by Mount Brilliant Farm and owned by Tony Pennington, is out of the stakes-winning A.P. Indy mare Bayou Breeze.

Tiznow’s third winner out of an A.P. Indy mare last month was Tiz Shea D, who captured a maiden special weight on Feb. 7 at Parx Racing. The colt, bred by Green Lantern Stables and owned by Daniel Shea, is out of multiple stakes winner Ender’s Sister, who bankrolled $525,048.

Tiznow’s fourth winner in the month of February, California Coast, was produced by the Victory Gallop mare McVictory. The colt, who won a maiden special weight on Feb. 21 at Oaklawn Park, was bred by WinStar and now runs for Gary and Mary West.

Tiznow is the only two-time winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic, capturing North America’s richest race in 2000 at Churchill Downs and in 2001 at Belmont Park. Both victories secured Eclipse Award honors, including the 2000 Horse of the Year title. He won five other graded stakes, including the 2001 Santa Anita Handicap, and missed the board only once in 15 career starts, bankrolling $6,427,830. He was inducted into racing’s Hall of Fame in 2009.

Since entering stud in 2002, Tiznow has sired 500 career winners, including 59 stakes winners, for combined earnings of $60,926,162. His top runners include champion juvenile filly Folklore, Canadian champion Bear Now, Dubai World Cup winner Well Armed, Belmont Stakes winner Da' Tara, and multiple Grade 1 winners Colonel John, Tizway, and Tough Tiz's Sis. His top runners out of A.P. Indy mares include Grade 1 winner Morning Line and Grade 2 winner Norumbega.
