Tate's Landing graduates with ease at first asking

Friday, August 17, 2012 |
Tate's Landing, a 2-year-old son of Orientate scored a sharp 5 1/2-length win in his career debut Aug. 16 at Delaware Park (VIDEO). The victory capped an excellent week for the Gainesway stallion, who had ten winners at eight different tracks ranging in age from two through eight.

Tate's Landing was tabbed a “Notable Maiden” winner by the Thoroughbred Times after his victory . He set a swift early pace in the 5 1/2-furlong contest, but had plenty left to draw away from the field in the stretch to complete the distance in 1:04.51.

The then-unnamed dark bay juvenile, bred in Kentucky by Gaines-Gentry Thoroughbreds, was consigned at the OBS April 2-year-old sale as hip No. 1172. The winning bid was placed by Davant Latham, agent.

Tate's Landing is the second foal out of Treetop Landing, who is a half-sister to Grade 2 winner Irgun's Angel and the multiple stakes winner Balmy. The family also includes 2-year-old champion Roving Boy.
