Tiz the Bomb Racing News

Tiz the Bomb earned his place near the top of the Road to the Kentucky Derby table with two stellar performances on the Turfway Park Tapeta. He is from the second crop of 2016 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) winner Hit it a Bomb, whose progeny to date have stayed 1 1/4 miles. His dam Tiz the Key is by Tiznow out of an A.P. Indy mare, thus including two top recent sources of dirt stamina. Tiz the Bomb should stay 1 1/4 miles but the leading U.S.-trained turf juvenile of 2021 disappointed in his only three-year-old run on dirt so is a doubt on that surface. Connections had considered the 2,000 Guineas (G1) in England but have decided to proceed to the Kentucky Derby.
