Papa Tiger Scores Frontrunning MSW Victory

Albany, CA (December 11, 2022) – Papa Tiger became his sires’ 50th individual winner in 2023 with his maiden special weight victory to close out the card at Golden Gate Fields.

The 3-year-old son of Smiling Tiger just missed the winner’s circle by one length last out in his first race over the all weather. Today, he stumbled at the start, but got his legs under him quickly and went straight to the front. Taking an uncontested lead into the stretch, he was looking around a little until a challenger appeared. He dug in and kept going gamely to win by a half-length.

Papa Tiger was bred by Premier Thoroughbreds and he races for the partnership of Rusty Brown, Philip Lebherz and Alan Klein. Trained by Andy Mathis, he was produced by the nine-time winning Mutakddim mare, Nuff Said Nuff Said.
