A yearling filly by Tapit and consigned by Gainesway went for $300,000 at the July 12 Fasig-Tipton yearling sale in Kentucky, the highest price paid for a filly at the sale and second-highest overall at the one day event.

The chestnut filly, cataloged as hip No. 250, went to Winchell Thoroughbreds. The Kentucky-bred is out of the Vicar mare Easily, a winner at two and three who earned $112,943.

“We like Tapits a lot,” said David Fiske, racing manager and farm manager for the Winchell family who signed the sales ticket. “She was the only one we came to bid on. She is big, she has a lot of length. She is a nice filly.”

Easily comes from a great family loaded with black-type horses out of White Jasmine. She produced Arlington Oaks (G3) winner Til Forbid, who also placed in seven other graded races. Til Forbid is the dam of Grade 3 winner Scoop

White Jasmine also produced Grade 3 winner Hold On Blue (Omaha Gold Cup S.); stakes winners Cinch and Red and White; and the stakes-placed Coragil, the dam of Grade 2 winner Softly and Grade 3 winner Coragil Cat.
