Tiznow – Stormy Welcome by Storm Cat
2015 Crescent, LLC
Two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and Horse of the Year Tiznow has developed into a phenomenal sire. He is a consistent sire of performers at the highest level, responsible for half a dozen millionaires, champions in three countries, and a bevy of G1 winners. This colt hails from one of racing’s most prolific families. Third dam Weekend Surprise, a half-sister to champion Wolfhound, produced A.P. Indy and Summer Squall. Further descendants include Court Vision, Mambo in Seattle, and Welcome Surprise. Since his purchase, Stormy Welcome’s three-year-old, the Tapit filly Welcoming, was an impressive maiden winner during Belmont Park’s 2015 Fall Championship Meet.
Weather Wiz is in training at Belmont Park with Jimmy Jerkens. He put in another good effort in his last race on January 13 finishing a strong second to the favorite and actually closing a bit with a final surge inside the 1/16th pole. He posted a 92 Beyer from the AOC N2X race, one point short of his career best, finishing over eight lengths ahead of the third place finisher.
