Tapit Takes Two
Written by Alan Porter 1 | Feb 11, 2009 |
Sophmore sire Tapit (TrueNicks,SRO)
to emphasize that he’s for real, and had a pair of second-season fillies take
graded wins. Champion 2-year-old filly Stardom Bound (Tapit – My White Corvette, by Tarr Road) added to her laurels in the
Las Virgenes Stakes (gr. I), and might just possibly be heading for a clash
with Pioneerof the Nile in the Santa Anita Derby (gr. I).
Tapit’s new graded
scorer was War Echo (Tapit – Wild
Vision, by Wild Again) in the Silverbulletday Stakes (gr. III), which saw Four
Gifts, the offspring of another sophomore sire -- Even the Score by Unbridled's Song (TrueNicks,SRO)
-- take second. Rated A++ by
TrueNicks, War Echo is the third stakes winner for the Pulpit/Wild Again cross,
the best being War Echo’s similarly-bred half-brother Pyro.
