Tapit colt tops Keeneland day 4 at $650K


Wednesday, September 14, 2011 |
A son of Tapit consigned by Gainesway brought the highest bid of the day during the fourth session of the Keeneland September yearling sale, with Jon and Sarah Kelly making the purchase for a hefty $650,000.

The chestnut, hip No. 730, is a full brother to Grade 3 winner Hightap, and was bred in Kentucky by Gainesway. He is from the family of Canadian Horse of the Year Norcliffe and Canadian classic winner Lodge Hill.

Jon Kelly said the colt’s pedigree and other factors influenced his decision to sign the ticket and that he was willing to go higher if necessary. “He is by Tapit and has a sibling that’s the same breeding. His conformation was excellent, and he scoped perfectly,” Kelly said.
