Coup de Grace prevails in adventurous Oh Say S.

Saturday, July 05, 2014 | Tapit
Tapit's 3-year-old colt Coup de Grace became the third multiple stakes winner of 2014 for his sire on Saturday with a come-from-behind win in the $50,000 Oh Say S. at Delaware Park. He is one of Tapit's 10 stakes winners of 18 stakes, both category-leading numbers for the nation's leading sire.

Sent off the 6-5 favorite in the six furlong Oh Say, Coup de Grace was away in good order near the back of the seven-horse field. In fifth with a quarter mile to go, Coup de Grace found running room on the inside to take aim on the leaders. The chestnut colt was closing in quickly in the final furlong, but had to alter course sharply to the outside in deep stretch, then gathered himself to strike the front in the final strides (VIDEO).

The time for the six furlongs was an excellent 1:09.24 on a fast track, earning a lifetime-best Beyer Speed Figure of 95.

Coup de Grace, who won the Bay Shore S. (G3) earlier this year, is now 4-0-0 in six starts, earning $288,100. He is trained by Larry Jones for Fox Hill Farm, who purchased him for $300,000 out of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling sale.
