Maryland Yearlings Day-2: US$170k Tiznow Colt
In the US auction ring, Jay Em Ess Stable paid top price of US$170,000 for a colt by Tiznow (out of Cinnamon Spice) during the 2nd session at the 3-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern Fall Yearling Sale at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The colt was consigned by Welker Sales as agent for Perry Flynn; Bayne Welker previously bought the colt privately as agent (from breeder Rob Whiteley's Liberation Farm) after he was listed as reserve-not-attained on a final bid of US$47,000 at the 2007 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Welker told thoroughbredtimes.com the recent success of Tiznow was the major factor in the colt's price, noting: "I think he was appreciated because of his sire, who has just done no wrong this year. His horses have been winning Gr1s & Listed stakes: it's not just 1 horse that's carrying him. He's got multiple horses out there that are running at the top level. This horse had a pedigree that stood out amongst everything in this book & he was a big, free-moving colt."
