But doesn't it show Hyperion and Man O War are past the 5 generations?
I heard many many times this week that Tapits do well and that TAP knows how to win this race!!!
When I first heard about nicks, it was the Teddy Hyperion nick. I've always loved seeing a lot of Hyperion for turf horses.
But these are 2nd generation Tapits, not products directly from the source.
Tapit is part of what I call the Seattle Slew Nick who is part of the Bold Ruler Nick back to the 1970.s
Tapit Pulpit APIndy Seattle Slew always in the first 3 generations, always in a 5 generation pedigree for a Tapit winner
For a Tapit son First 4 generations counting Tapit, they all have strong female lines in this sire line
Bms line Unbridled, Fappiano, Mr P will be in his Progeny 5 generation chart, like they were for tapit
Tapit is a Tapit Pulpit API Slew/ Unbridled Fappiano Mrp Sire Nick
with Nijinsky CS, Secretariat Le Fabuleux P, In Reality in there 5 generation, you lose all of Tapits 5th generation
to be in his progenys 5th generation, But you get Their Progeny that have some strong females.
We The People has this plus Tiznow Constitution/ Tiznow Same as Tiz The Law the 9f Belmont Winner
Barber Road has The Race Day Tapit/ Halo Nick with Princequillo in a passing position
Also you have some strong Curlin Smart Strike Mr P, line in here
Rich Strike with the Powerful Gold Digger 13c Rasmussen Factor With 2 lines of Mr P one on each side
and his full Brother Search For Gold on the Dam Side both with Blue Larkspur in a Pp.
Mr P has Smart Strike on both side who has Curlin And Rich Strikes Dam Gold Strike can't get any closer then that.
Skippy has Exaggerator Curlin Smart Strike Mr P/ War Chant Danzig Northern Dancer ,strong Belmont Nick
Nest has a strong Curlin /Api Belmont Nick with 12 blue line Mare's in 5 generations with 6 lines of possible
Xfactor Large Heart. she had the fastest last 1/8 in this field in her last race.
past Belmont Winners 4 of the tapits are P/N
Essential Quality Tapit/Elusive Quality Gone West Mr P 2021
Tiz The Law Constitution Tapit / Tiznow P/N 9f 2020
Tapwrit Tapit/ In Reality P/N 2017
Creator Tapit/ Damascus Teddy P/N 2016
Tonalist Tapit/ Pleasant Colony His Majesty Ribot P/N 2014
Rags To Riches API Seattle Slew/ Deputy Minister Vice Regent Northern Dancer 2007
2006-1994 Mr P and Northern Dancer Dominated
AP Indy Seattle Slew/ Secretariat 1992
I did a Lasix free Trifecta Box with Nest, Rich Strike, Mo Donegal, Barber Road
and a Exacta box Rich Strike Nest
Don't overlook message 1193 that list the contenders in this race that has a winning Belmont Nick (Sire/Bms Line)
Nest Rich Strike We The People Skippy
Well of course MoW and Hyperion are but WtP and Skippy are the only two in the race that have a dam in their tail first five generations that have one of those two sirelines. 8 of the last 11 winners had the same. That was as far as I got lol. Da ‘Tara too but not Sarava I don’t think.
