Tapizar sires first foals


Monday, January 13, 2014 |

Tapizar, winner of the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1), sired his first two reported foals when both a colt and filly were born on Jan. 6.

The bay colt is out of the mare Palm Beach Story, by Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus, and was foaled at Gunston Hall Farm. Palm Beach Story is a daughter of Grade 2 winner Rare Blend, and half-sister to Grade 3 winner Rare Gift.

“He is a good-bodied, well-balanced colt. We are very pleased with him,” said Larman Cowles of Gunston Hall.

The bay filly is out of the Storm Cat mare Ominous Cat, a daughter of dual Grade 1 winner Fleet Renee, who is co-owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds and WinStar Farm. The filly was foaled at WinStar.

“She is a correct, good-boned, well-made filly,” said Elliott Walden, President & CEO of WinStar.

Gainesway’s Michael Hernon added: “Tapizar, the leading miler at stud by his sire, Tapit, proved very popular with breeders in 2013, and he is again in strong demand for 2014 at $15,000 stands and nurses.”
