MGISW Tiz the Law (Constitution) continued his preparations for the GI Breeders' Cup Classic with a six-furlong breeze in 1:13.20 over a fast track at Keeneland Friday.

With regular rider Heather Smullen aboard, the NY-bred colt worked in fractions of :26, :49.60, 1:13.20 and galloped out seven furlongs in 1:25.80.

“I wanted to get him used to the track, and I think he gets over any track better than Churchill,” trainer Barclay Tagg said in reference to Churchill Downs, where Tiz the Law suffered the only two losses of his stellar career. “If he shows improvement next week, even better.”

“The first time he works at a track, he looks around,” Smullen said. “Today he went out and did his job and galloped out nicely. His next work he'll be more aggressive and that should set him up nicely for the race.”
