Sackatoga Stable’s four-time Grade I winner and recent GI Kentucky Derby runner-up Tiz the Law (Constitution) has returned to trainer Barclay Tagg’s Belmont home base as his connections consider a start in the Oct. 3 GI Preakness S. “He’ll be doing his regular gallops and as long as everything continues along well, then we’ll have a work next weekend to assess where we are,” said Sackatoga Operating Manager Jack Knowlton. “We want to make sure he comes out of the race well and acts like he did after the [Aug. 8 GI Runhappy] Travers. That’s what we’d like to see moving forward.” The New York-bred racked up four victories this term–in the GIII Holy Bull S., GI Curlin Florida Derby, GI Belmont S. and Travers, but his attempt at an unorthodox Triple Crown–or Quadruple Crown–was derailed by Authentic (Into Mischief) last week at Churchill Downs. Authentic’s connections have already said he will run in the Preakness.
