I also had read about Jack Knowlton wanting redemption by racing Riz in the Preakness.  Trainer Barclay Tagg  express his opinion that Tiz should aim for the Breeder,s cup.  I always believe owners should listen to the trainer,so I hope this happens.

i am not sure about the track at Churchill Downs not being liked by horses,but just heard one comment about the softness of it. It is strange that Tiz’s two losses occurred on the same track!

i just hope the health and welfare of Tiz should come into all decisions when to race him! Like so many fans, I look forward to seeing this champ  stay safe and show his great talent in the future!

 Authentic got a 105 Beyer rating for the Derby. Tiz's highest rating it 109. - Not that that means all that much, but I think Tiz does better under longer layoffs. (Authentic had a good space between races.) So, the Tiz team should just train up to the BC. I hope Tagg's opinion is respected.

It's just dreaming, but I would love to see Tiz put away Authentic and Maximum Security in the BC :)

Let's hope Keeneland is not a mushy track!

 I am also hoping Tiz' s connections agree to train him up to the Breeder's Cup: with a little time between races he should be ready to roll:  Love him and want him to win the Breeder's Cup with Maximum Security coming in a close second!!!

As disappointing as the Derby was, TTL actually did quite well. He was second in a good field, and I think the story might have been different had Authentic has some pressure put on him.
