US Maryland 2YOs Day-2: US$470k Tiznow Colt
In the US auction ring, Ahmed Zayat's Zayat Stables & Mike Moreno from Southern Equine Stables paid top price of US$470,000 for a colt by WinStar Farm stallion Tiznow (out of 22-year-old Pass The Tab mare Horns Gray) during the closing session at the 2-day Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2YOs-In-Training Sale at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The colt (consigned by Hartley/DeRenzo Thoroughbreds as agent) is a half-brother to both Gr1-winning juvenile Awesome Humor & stakes-placed Dignified Donovan. The colt (which clocked a pedestrian 11.0sec for 1 furlong during the pre-sale breeze-up session) previously sold for US$175,000 at last year's Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
