Pedigree

Tiz a Minister is by the well-bred Ministers Wild Cat, a sprinter/miler who didn't quite fulfill the promise of his mouth-watering pedigree on the track.

Ministers Wild Cat is by the influential Deputy Minister and out of the champion filly Hollywood Wildcat, who has also produced 2000 Breeders' Cup Mile winner War Chant, Group 2 victor Ivan Denisovich and three other stakes performers.

Briefly on the Derby trail himself in 2003, Ministers Wild Cat won the Golden State Mile and finished second in the El Camino Real Derby. As a five-year-old he went on to add the six-furlong Jacques Cartier to his resume.

A California stallion, Ministers Wild Cat has sired several state-bred stakes winners, led by Doinghardtimeagain and Going for a Spin.

Tiz a Minister was produced by the unraced Cee's Tizzy mare Tiz a Mistress.

Cee's Tizzy, who was third in the 1990 Super Derby in a very short career, has exerted an enduring legacy as the sire of Hall of Famer Tiznow. He also factors as the broodmare sire of last year's Haskell romper Paynter and current Derby contender Oxbow, whose dams are both full sisters to Tiznow.

Tiz a Minister comes from an undistinguished female line.
