Gainesway sells Tapit colt for $1.55 million at Keeneland Day 3

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 | Tapit
Gainesway bred and sold of the top offerings during Day 3 of the 2013 Keeneland September Yearling sale when a colt by the farm's top stallion Tapit brought a winning bid of $1.55 million. The hammer price was the fourth-highest of the session.

Regis Farms and Stonestreet Stables partnered up to buy hip No. 515, who is out of Successful Outlook, winner of the Grade 3 Tempted S. Her lone foal to race, Sweet Lulu, was the recent winner of the Grade 1 Test S. at Saratoga.

He's got a very good, live pedigree, he's a half brother to a grade I winner now, Tapit speaks for himself. He's got a catlike walk, he's just light on his feet, athletic," said Richard Hogan representing Regis. "I thought he was a great colt with the best physical (makeup) I've seen, probably, for the sale."

Through the first three days of the marathon auction, Tapit's sales average of $427,381 is fifth among all sires, while his gross receipts of $8,975,000 tops the list.
