Tapit filly still perfect after taking stakes debut


Saturday, June 21, 2014 | Tapit
Walk Close ran her record to 3-for-3 on Saturday with a thrilling, come-from-behind in the $100,000 Wild Applause S. over the Belmont Park turf. The 3-year-old filly is the 10th stakes winner of 2014 for Tapit, the nation's leading sire with nearly $7.2 million in progeny earnings.

Walk Close, who broke her maiden last September at Belmont, has put together a pair of heart-stopping nose victories in two starts this year. As she did in her allowance win in May, the Christophe Clement trainee made big move in the stretch of the one-mile Wild Applause to get to the wire first in the final stride. She stopped the clock in 1:35.71 on the firm turf.

With the $60,000 payday, Walk Close raised her lifetime bankroll to $154,200. The Kentucky-bred filly is owned by Highland Yard, who purchased her for $180,000 out of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling sale.
