2011 MET MILE RESULT: Tizway does it easily

Tizway stalked the early pace of Tackleberry through the opening half-mile, moved to the lead while coming off the far turn, and put away the rest of the field on his way to winning the Grade 1 Met Mile at Belmont Park on Saturday afternoon.  Tizway, third in the 2010 Met Mile, went off at odds of 3/1 and was ridden by Rajiv Maragh and trained by Harold Bond.

WIN: 11-Tizway ($8.20, $5.00, $3.90)
PLACE: 3-Rodman ($28.60, $18.00)
SHOW: 5-Caixa Eletronica ($5.20)

$2 EX (11-3): $358.00
$2 TRI (11-3-5): $2,400.00
$2 SUPER (11-3-5-4): $15,123.00

1/4: 23.17
1/2: 45.57
3/4: 1:08.66
Finish: 1:32.90

Internal Splits:
1/4: 23.17
1/2: 22.40
3/4: 23.09
Finish: 24.24

Tackleberry got the opening spit he wanted - a tepid 23.17 - but from there the pace picked up enough to set things up perfectly for Tizway, who sat in the garden spot throughout the early stages.  A solid closing quarter of 24.24 by the winner stops the final time in a sizzling 1:32.90.  A very nice performance by Tizway in his third start of 2011.
