Tiz The Law Yearlings Make Big Splash at Keeneland

Tiz The Law’s first crop of yearlings were well received during Book 2 of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale this week, with four of the five sold bringing at least $300,000.

That group was led by two $550,000 yearlings with Pin Oak Stud paying the price for Hip 668 from Bluewater Sales.

The second foal out of the multiple Grade III-placed Promise of Spring, he hails from Rowland Hancock’s breeding program and was a $125,000 Faisg-Tipton November purchase by RDJ/MRS Thoroughbreds last fall. The colt sees at least one stakes performer under three of his four dams on the page with the group led by the multiple stakes winning Dawn of Forever.

Promise of Spring’s first foal is a Mendelssohn juvenile named Boys Of Summer, who is recording works at Fair Hill.

A filly out of Fully Living was the other $550,000 offering when MV Magnier purchased her from Ashview Farm.

Bred by her consignor with Old Oak Farm, the filly is a half-sister to the Grade III winner Ballet Dancing and Grade II-placed Untreated from her dam’s three winners from four to race. Fully Living was successful on the track as well as a Grade 2-placed mare. She also saw her 3-year-old brother become the second stakes performer out of her own dam when Abeliefinthislivin won a Grade III.

The filly’s second dam is a half-sister to champion and dual Grade I winner Halfbridled with two other half-siblings producing stakes winners or the dam of a stakes winner.

Centennial Farms was the buyer of a $375,000 Tiz The Law colt out of Katie’s Keepsake from Nursery Place. Bred by Dr. Steve Laymon, that colt is a half-brother to the stakes-placed Aquila Moon with their dam a half-sister to last year’s Champion Female Sprinter Goodnight Olive.

The colt’s Grade III winning second dam is one of five stakes performers out of Lake Huron, who is also a half-sister to a stakes performer. Each of the four dams on this page have produced at least one stakes performer.

Wrapping up the $300,000+ crew is a filly consigned by Hunter Valley Farm and purchased for that price tag by Andrew Farm.

Bred by Petaluma Bloodstock out of Dalsaros, the filly is a granddaughter of the dual Grade I winner Ask The Moon. Ask The Moon produced multiple stakes winner Belgrano and Grade III-placed Sundaysatthebeach among her four to race. Dalsaros herself was a two-time winner of more than $83,000.

Those results came on the back of a $375,000 filly in Book 1 purchased by Hartley/De Renzo.

Offered by Woods Edge Farm, that filly is the third out of Grade III-placed Our Majesty. Our Majesty is one of four stakes performers out of Undervalued with Overvalued and I Spy Wolfie both winning multiple stakes.

Five of Tiz The Law’s six offered in Book 2 sold for an average of $382,000 and median of $375,000. The four-time Grade I winner has 49 cataloged at this year’s Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
