The Word On Tiz The Bomb

April 30: “Everyone came out of their workouts in good shape,” said Greg Geier, a training assistant to McPeek. Tiz the Bomb worked a half-mile on Saturday with Smile Happy. They posted a 48-second time.

May 3: Trainer Kenny McPeek: “I’m real pleased with both Smile Happy in the five and Tiz the Bomb in the nine. I wanted to be inside Zandon, and that happened. They’ll be fine, in both their spots. In 2013, I had two starters, when I ran Frac Daddy (finished 16th) and Java’s War (finished 13th).”

Betting insight from Dave Bontempo

After finishing just seventh in the Holy Bull, Tiz the Bomb had an uphill fight to get his Kentucky Derby qualifying points. However, thanks to some terrific handlers, he’s firmly in the mix with 100 points.

Tiz the Bomb was acutely placed in the Jeff Ruby Steaks instead of the more prestigious Florida Derby and Arkansas Derby races that same weekend. The gamble paid off and he won that race, winning $600,000. The move capitalized on a softer field and prioritized standing over winnings and grandeur.
