Tapit filly stays undefeated after Emerald Downs SW


Monday, August 06, 2012 | Tapit
Goin to the Window outdueled her stablemate to take the $50,000 Angie C. S. for 2-year-old fillies Aug. 6 at Emerald Downs. She is one of eight stakes winners in 2012 for Tapit; the Gainesway stallion ranks fifth on this year's General Sire list, with more than $5 million in progeny earnings. He is one of only two sires in the top 10 with two Grade 1 stakes winners.

Racing together from the outset, Goin to the Window and Blueberry Smoothie vied for command until deep  stretch, with Goin to the Window finally edging clear for a one-length victory in a stakes record 1:09.01 for six furlongs.

“I rode both (Goin to the Window and Blueberry Smoothie) in their first starts, so I knew they were both good fillies,” winning rider Juan Gutierrez said. “It was a hard decision, but I had more confidence in Goin to the Window because she won her race easier.

“I didn’t have to ask her at all,” he added. “In this race, I wanted to sit behind the speed, but she pulled me right up to the front.”

Goin to the Window was bred in Kentucky by Northwest Farm LLC, who owns the bay filly in partnership with Debbie Paxton.. She is unbeaten in two starts with earnings of $37,043. Tom Wenzel trains the winner.
