Tapitsfly adds G2 Honey Fox S. to her resume


Sunday, March 18, 2012 |
Tapitsfly's driving finish in Gulfstream Park's Honey Fox S. (G2) put her in the winner's circle for a graded stakes for the first time in her career (VIDEO). The 5-year-old daughter of Tapit won the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf before that race was graded.

Tapit is currently second on the General Sire List, with progeny earnings of more than $1.5 million. His leading earner this year is Hansen, one of the early Kentucky Derby (G1) favorites who is scheduled to make his final pre-Derby start in the April 7 Wood Memorial (G1).

Tapitsfly had a clean trip in the $150,000 Honey Fox. The gray/roan mare sat off the pace in sixth for nearly six furlongs before swinging wide for the stretch run. She kicked powerfully for home, rolling by the leaders to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:34.23 for the mile on the firm turf.

“Everything went good. She broke sharp but relaxed right away for me. It was a nice comfortable pace in front for us,” winning rider Julien Leparoux said. “She came out in the straight and finished up really good, very nice.”

The $90,000 payday boosted the winner's career bankroll to $880,050. Tapitsfly was bred in Kentucky by her owner Frank L. Jones, Jr.
