A striking gray son of Gainesway sire Tapit brought the highest price thus far for the second session of the Keeneland September yearling sale Tuesday, selling to Stonestreet Stables for $700,000.
Out of the Editor’s Note mare Tempting Note, the colt is a full brother to Grade II-placed Tempted to Tapit.
“He was a great Tapit,” said John Moynihan, agent for Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet operation. “He showed himself great and was just a really, really good Tapit. The mare’s been bred to Tapit twice and had two stakes horses so we’ll take our shot. It was a lot of money. Keep your fingers crossed. But the good horses are certainly bringing the money.”
