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.
