Tapit Takes Two

Sophmore sire Tapit (TrueNicks,SRO) continues 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.
