(Feb. 27, 2020)–Unbeatable in his last five races sprinting, trainer Dean Pederson’s Fashionably Fast will stretch out to a flat mile as he heads a field of five California-bred or sired older horses in Sunday’s $100,000 Tiznow Stakes at Santa Anita.A game neck winner of the Donald Valpredo California Cup Sprint going six furlongs here on Jan. 18, Fashionably Fast was a respectable second in his only career try at one mile on dirt 11 starts back on Aug. 26, 2018.The Doug O’Neill-trained Oliver, who was a close second to Fashionably Fast three starts back in the seven furlong Cary Grant Stakes at Del Mar Nov. 24 and the Carla Gaines-conditioned Tiger Dad, fresh off a 6 ¼ length allowance score going six furlongs here on Feb. 2, would appear to be Fashionably Fast’s primary opposition.Named after the Hall of Fame Cal-bred who won back to back Breeders’ Cup Classics in 2000 and 2001, the Tiznow is sponsored by the CTBA and is part of the lucrative Golden State Series for California-bred or sired horses.FASHIONABLY FASTOwner:  Harris Farms Inc., Per Antonsen & John Nicoletti                          Trainer:  Dean PedersonArguably the hottest Cal-bred in training, this 5-year-old Lucky Pulpit gelding counts three consecutive California-bred stakes wins among his five-win skein, which dates back to a 5 ¾ length allowance score going six furlongs at Del Mar on July 27.  Bred in California by Harris Farms, he’s out of the stakes winning Fall Fashion, who is by Forestry.  Although seemingly invincible among state-breds sprinting, Fashionably Fast tired late to finish second, beaten 1 ¼ lengths in his only mile dirt try and was fifth in a one mile turf allowance eight starts back on Dec. 31, 2018. In both route races, he was keen in the early going, which took its toll late.OLIVEROwner:  William R. PeeplesTrainer:  Doug O’NeillMost recently second, beaten 1 ½ lengths in a seven furlong allowance against open company here on Feb. 8, this 4-year-old Papa Clem colt earned a 92 Beyer Speed figure, tops among Tiznow entrants. Fourth, beaten 2 ½ lengths by Fashionably Fast in the Cal Cup Sprint Jan. 18, he was second, beaten a half length by him in the seven furlong Cary Grant three starts back on Nov. 24. A 1 ½ length winner of the one mile E.B. Johnston Stakes at Los Alamitos five races back on Sept. 7, Oliver is proven at the Tiznow distance and could be poised to exploit Fashionably Fast’s potential distance limitations.TIGER DADOwner:  Mark Devereaux, Scott & Mark GrossTrainer:  Carla GainesA rousing 6 ¼ length winner going six furlongs versus open company in a first condition allowance on Feb. 2, this 4-year-old Smiling Tiger gelding will try two turns for the first time on Sunday. With an overall mark of 12-3-4-2, Tiger Dad’s lone main track win came in his most recent start, in which he earned an 86 Beyer.THE $100,000 TIZNOW STAKES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 7 of 8  Approximate post time 4 p.m. PTOliver–Abel Cedillo–124Tiger Dad–Victor Espinoza–120Fashionably Fast–Tiago Pereira–120Posterize–Geovanni Franco–120Ernie Banks–Umberto Rispoli–120First post time for an eight-race card on Sunday is at 1 p.m., with admission gates opening at 10:30 a.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.last_img read more
