Tiz the Bomb was the recipient of a head's-up ride from Brian Hernandez, Jr. and finished best of all to take out Monday's $500,000 Kentucky Downs Juvenile Turf Mile. Settled in the latter third of the field as they made the descent from the highest part of the course, the bay improved into midfield passing halfway and traveled nicely into the false straight. Hernandez gave some thought to going around rivals approaching the final quarter mile, but opted for an inside passage, and the duo finished willingly for the victory. Favored Kiss the Sky outgamed Play Action Pass for second. A debut seventh sprinting over the Churchill main track May 14, Tiz the Bomb scorched a group of Ellis Park maidens to the tune of 14 1/4 lengths in a rained-off test over a mile July 2. As a $330,000 purchase out of the Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase a year ago, Tiz the Bomb was easily the most expensive of 12 yearlings sold by his sire in 2020. He has a yearling half-sister by Free Drop Billy and a weanling half-brother by Mor Spirit. His dam was bred back to Gormley this year. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
