Tyson Continues Hard-Hitting Ways in Seagram Cup

Tyson  made it consecutive stakes victories on the all-weather Tapeta track July 29 at Woodbine in the CA$178,850 Seagram Cup Stakes (G2), leading gate to wire over runner-up Carrothers  and third-place Artie’s Storm .

The 4-year-old son of Tapit  , coming off a 1 1/2-length victory in the July 1 Dominion Day Stakes (G3), broke out of the gate to take the lead in Saturday’s 1 1/16-mile contest. Tyson, however, would be pressed down the backstretch by Carrothers, and the two began to pull clear from the four other horses in the race.

Tyson, owned by Hill ‘n’ Dale Equine Holdings and Stretch Run Ventures, would shove off Carrothers’ bid in the stretch to win by three lengths, paying $2.90 to win.

“This horse just improves steadily,” trainer Josie Carroll said. “He has matured so much with racing.”

Underneath jockey Rafael Hernandez, Tyson would never give up first place, leading through fractions of :25.26, :49.88, 1:12.64, and 1:36.61 en route to a final time of 1:43.26 for 1 1/16 miles.

Tyson is now 4-0-1 from five starts with $225,205 in earnings.

Bred in Kentucky by Hill ‘n’ Dale Equine Holdings & Stretch Run Ventures, Tyson is the first runner out of the winning Smart Strike mare Honouring , a sister to grade 1 winner Streaming  and stakes winner Treasuring . Honouring’s two other subsequent foals are full brothers to Tyson—a 3-year-old placed gelding named Whitewalker  and an unnamed, unraced 2-year-old.
