Jockey (from last start)
Don't be surprised to see Tizamagician leading the pack in the Breeders’ Cup, considering he’s blessed with one quality many premier horses competing at long distance racing don’t have, natural early speed. Also, keep in mind 18 of his 19 lifetime starts have been in California so he’ll feel right at home at this year’s World Championships.
Never too far from the lead, Tizamagician used his gifted speed to dazzle at this summer’s Del Mar meet, winning the opening day Cougar II Stakes (G3) before most recently finishing a determined second in the TVG Pacific Classic Stakes (G1). After a tune-up allowance win at Santa Anita to begin his 4-year-old campaign Tizamagician was second in the San Pasqual Stakes (G2), and had a mid-pack finish in the Santa Anita Handicap (G1), before breaking through with his inaugural stakes victory in the Tokyo City Cup Stakes (G3) in April. Showing continued maturity, Tizamagician shipped east June 5 and registered a determined second in the Brooklyn Stakes Presented by Northwell Health (G2) at Belmont Park.
After selling for $150,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton New York Saratoga Select Yearling Sale, the son of Tiznow finished second in four of his first five starts before breaking his maiden at Santa Anita Park on New Year’s Day 2020. His connections need only look to Tizamagiancian’s sire, two-time Classic winner Tiznow, for confidence that a trip to the Breeders’ Cup winner’s circle is a distinct possibility.
