Injury puts Tizway out of Breeders' Cup
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Elmont, NY (Sports Network) - Tizway, the leading older male thoroughbred, has been ruled out of the Breeders' Cup Classic with a leg injury. Trainer James Bond made the announcement Tuesday.
The six-year-old was found to have a ligament injury of his left front leg and will be retired. Tizway was expected to be one of the favorites for the 1 1/4- mile Classic on November 5 at Churchill Downs.
Owned by William Clifton, Tizway has not raced since winning the Whitney Handicap at Saratoga in early August. A fever kept him from some training in September preventing him from starting in the Jockey Club Gold Cup on October 1 at Belmont Park.
Prior to the Whitney, Tizway won the Met Mile at Belmont Park on Memorial Day with jockey Rajiv Maragh. This year the horse earned $876,000 in four starts and has career winnings of $1,359,274.
