Belmont: Met Mile truer test for familiar rivals Tizway, Tackleberry.

Belmont: Met Mile truer test for familiar rivals Tizway, Tackleberry

By David Grening

 

ELMONT, N.Y. – Tizway and Tackleberry may have been out of their comfort zones in distance, circumference, and surface last month when they chased a million-dollar pot in the 1 1/8-mile Charles Town Classic run around three turns over a sloppy track.

 

Monday, both horses return to what they probably do best when they meet for the third straight time in the Grade 1, $500,000 Metropolitan Handicap, run as a one-turn mile at Belmont Park. And since Tizway is never better than he is at Belmont Park, perhaps the 6-year-old Tiznow colt rates a slight edge over his 4-year-old counterpart in a seemingly wide-open 118th renewal of the Met Mile, which tops an 11-race card that also includes the Grade 2, $150,000 Sands Point Stakes for 3-year-old fillies on the turf.
