Multiple Grade 1 winner Tiz The Law retired to stand at Ashford Stud for 2021
The son of Constitution finished his racing career on veterinary advice
Multiple Grade 1 winner Tiz The Law has been retired from racing on veterinary advice and will stand at Coolmore America's Ashford Stud for 2021.
The son of Constitution, the winner of the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at two, was the winner of three top-level events this term for owners Sackatoga Stable and trainer Barclay Tagg, including when a five and a half lengths victor of the Travers Stakes and an equally dominant winner of the Belmont Stakes.
“From day one when he broke his maiden at Saratoga we have been watching Tiz The Law closely and he has everything you look for in a stallion prospect,” said Coolmore America manager Dermot Ryan.
“He has an outstanding race record, he’s a very good-looking individual and he boasts a strong pedigree. Barclay Tagg, Robin Smullen and their team have done a fantastic job with him and we are also grateful to Jack Knowlton and his partners in Sackatoga Stable for letting us be a part of him.”
Jack Knowlton, operating manager of Sackatoga Stable, added: "The entire Tiz The Law team is deeply disappointed that Tiz The Law will be unable to race as a four-year-old as planned.
“He's provided the 35 owners a unique opportunity to compete and succeed at the highest level of thoroughbred racing. His impressive victory in the Grade 1 Travers at Saratoga was particularly rewarding for the Saratoga-based stable. Sackatoga Stable is looking forward to the next chapter of his career as a stallion.”
The three-year-old, who also finished runner-up to Authentic when sent off favourite for the rescheduled Kentucky Derby in September, is out of the Grade 2 victress Tizfiz, a full-sister to Graded scorer and Florida-based stallion Fury Kapcori.
Constitution, a son of the brilliant Tapit, was a dual Grade 1 winner on the track and WinStar's promising stallion has rapidly risen up the sire rankings in America, finishing second to Ashford's American Pharoah in the freshman and second-crop stallion rankings.
Tiz The Law will stand for a fee of $40,000 and will be available for inspection at Ashford on Monday.
