Coalinga, CA (July 20, 2020) – Harris Farms resident stallion Tizbud, the Grade One sire and full brother to Tiznow, was euthanized on July 20, 2020 due to an overall decline in health. Tizbud was pensioned at the farm, in 2018, where he was foaled, raised and stood at stud.

Tizbud, was bred by Cecilia Straub Rubens and is a son of Cee’s Tizzy out of Cee’s Song. He was the younger stakes winning full brother to Tiznow. Tizbud raced for Cee’s Stable LLC when he won the 2003 California Cup Classic by three lengths and placed in that years San Fernando Breeders’ Cup S. [G2]. He was trained by John Sadler.

Owner Pamela C. Ziebarth stood Tizbud at Harris Farms and for her, as breeder, Tizbud sired Grade I winner Tiz Flirtatious, Grade 3 winner Ambitious Brew and stakes winner Kitty Boom Boom. For other breeders he sired stakes winners; millionaire Soi Phet, Italian Boy, Catch Lorraine, Chao Chom among others.

David McGlothlin, retired farm manager of Harris Farms, “as different as they were, Tiznow and Tizbud both had that aura of ‘I am tops and I can prove it and don’t test me’. With my daily rounds at the farm, Tizbud was always my first stop and as always, he was eager for his carrot snacks. With his passing, this marks the end of a significant era in California breeding/racing. Tizbud will always have a special place in my heart and at the farm.”

Tizbud lived out his final few months in the same paddock where his famous brother was raised. He will be buried adjacent to his sire Cee’s Tizzy near the Harris Farms Stallion complex.
