5. Tapwrit

Derby Points/Rank: 54 – 2nd

Race Record: (5) 3-1-0

Earnings: $313,902

Breeding: Tapit – Appealing Zophie

Owner: Bridlewood Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, and Robert LaPenta

Trainer: Todd Pletcher

Last Race: Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby at Tampa Bay Downs, Finished 1st

Analysis: It’s all about getting better this time of year, and Tapwrit keeps doing that with each and every race.  His latest triumph in the Tampa Bay Derby was impressive, even if the field was a little bit skeptical.  I’m impressed with his ability to make a move on the turn to get position, and then still be able to finish the race strongly.  Hopefully, we get to see him one more time before the Kentucky Derby.
