VA-BRED FILLY THIRD IN GRADED 1,000 GUINEAS TRIAL IN JAPAN

THE CHART FROM THE HOCHI HAI

The $1.3 million Hochi Hai Fillies’ Revue (1,000 Guineas Trial) Gr. 2 was run on March 10 and the top three finishers were Meisho Mambo, Nancy Shine, and Virginia-bred Tiz Tremendous.  The top three represented the third, fourth and 11th choices at the betting windows. 
Race favorite Sambre et Meuse failed to return on fans’ hopes. She finished in 11th place, while race second pick Sound Rihanna took seventh.
The third place finisher Tiz Tremendous was bred in Virginia by Wayne and Susie Chatfield Taylor’s Morgan’s Ford Farm.  She was sold and resold at Keeneland bringing a top price of $27,000 before heading off to Japan.
Tiz Tremendous broke her maiden on a sloppy track in her third start at Koyoto racecourse, then ran fourth in the Poinsetta Stakes in her next effort.  In January, of this year she won a stake sprinting about 7 furlongs in the Award from the Scarlet Pimpernel at Chukyo Race Course.

Tiz Tremendous has now earned 33,228,000 yen or about $348,375 U.S.
This isn’t the first time the Chatfield-Taylor’s have enjoyed success with the sire Tiznow. In 2007, they produced a filly by Tiznow out of Never a No Hitter by Kris S.  That filly sold at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $185,000 and went on to win the $200,000 Demoiselle Stakes Gr.2 in 2009.
