Tinners Way Joins TrueNicks
Written by firstname.lastname@example.org | Apr 02, 2010 |
Tinner's Way (TrueNicks,SRO) was the last foal sired by the legendary Secretariat and went on to become one of his very best runners. He was a multiple stakes winner as a three-year-old in England before emerging as one of the top older males in North America in the mid-1990’s. He defeated Best Pal in the 1994 Pacific Classic (gr. I) and became the first two-time winner of that Del Mar fixture by taking the 1995 edition. He also captured the grade I Californian S. and won or placed in 12 other stakes, equaling a pair of track records in the process. His bankroll of $1,849,452 puts him behind only dual Classic winner Risen Star among the sons of Secretariat.
Out of a mare by The Minstrel, Tinners Way is a half brother to four stakes horses, including stakes winners in North America and Europe. Tinners Way has sired 60% winners from his starters thus far and several of his runners have earned in excess of $100,000. His best runners include Only One Way ($290,509) and the stakes winner Tin Man Commin (out of a mare by Fred Astaire).
Tinners Way stands at Key Ranch in Texas alongside Special Rate (TrueNicks,SRO) and Uncle Abbie (TrueNicks,SRO).
