More about Tap it To Win seems headed to Belmont Stks
Live Oak Plantation.
Trainer Mark Casse
Johnny Vee irons
$15,000 supplemental fee. Would normally be (this race not normal) $50,000.
Race / Bel Stakes entries based on established category + money won in those races, and must be non restricted races.
Tap it to Win scopes out to be...just like...
Knicks Go 2018 BC Juvey.
Lookin at Lee - Derby
Closing Argument -Derby
Ami's Messa - Gal's BC dirt sprint 7 fl (2017)
All 4 above ran 2nd but were off the radar.
Ami's Mesa?....Doesn't jog the brain cells Dogs. I was very high on Knicks Go to get to the derby, hopefully this one will have something left in the tank come September.
I did blog and show my tri key with Amy's Messa in the 1st, 2 and 3rd hole. Coming into the race she broke a track record for 6.5 furlongs. The filly that ran 2nd to her that day beat Ami in their Breeders Cup next test....just needed a 1/2 FL more. She was Gold Bar at + 50/1
As for Tap it To Win going strong and reaching the Sept Derby...I'm good with one race at a time
Although Tap it to Win ran in Allowance race at and On the Belmont sand box last Thursday and carried 120 for the 8.5 furlongs, the colt registered a 139 + change and nearing the record. Bel Stakes is 1/2 furlongs longer. This near record race now has colt for Bel Stakes who
picks up 6 pounds. (d)
Time is real and counts in PPs and in jail.
Govenverneur Morris----Belmont exit, Bluegrass entry.
87 days until the big dance, expecting more moves after defections!
Initially was pleased to see Warfield passing Bel Stakes for Blue Grass; as for the Bel Stks, Dogs would have and will still key a long shot would be Delta. If Warfield had stayed in the Belmont Stks (now injured) I would have used him in back up tri bet.
It's only mid June and TITW Tap it to Win is already albeit at the very bottom @ 50/1 on Derby Watch.
And my barking understanding of his breeding I like.
Why oh why I wish Johnny V had wrapped him up and put some seconds on final time. Bel Stakes will be 1 turn
Quick turn around for Tap It To Win in the Belmont. An iTM finish will be huge. Being a Tapit colt wouldn't surprise me if he upsets this race.
Been on Tiz the Law]s bandwagon since last year, can't jump off now.
Looking for a Tiz/Modernist exacta....Let's go Tap It To Win for the trifecta.
