Remit now a 2-time stakes winner for Tapit


Saturday, May 21, 2011 |
Remit battled her way to hard-fought victory in the $60,000 Wild Rose S. May 28 at Prairie Meadows (VIDEO). The 4-year-old daughter of Tapit got the job done in a thrilling three-horse blanket finish, winning by a nose over a pair of rivals who wound up in a dead-heat for second after being unable to be separated by the placing judges.

Remit became stakes winner number eight in 2011 for Tapit, the nation's leading sire who has progeny earnings of over $3.5 million.

The 1 1/16 mile Wild Rose was basically a three-way battle for the final six furlongs. Remit was in second for nearly the entire trip until just before the wire, when she dug in under Terry Thompson to hold off a pair of graded stakes horses in Taptam and Always in My Heart.

Remit is a Winchell Thoroughbreds, LLC homebred who was foaled in Kentucky. The chestnut filly is trained by Steve Asmussen and now sports a record of 4-1-0 from seven starts, earning $144,847. Her previous stakes win came at Prairie Meadows as well, when she won the 2010 Panthers S.

Remit is a full sister to Retap, winner of the Riley Allison Futurity and the 2009 Ruidoso Thoroughbred Derby.
