Tapwrit just right in GII Tampa Bay Derby win – Results and Replay


Tapwrit – a convincing winner of the 2017 GII Tampa Bay Derby by 4 1/2 lengths!

Tapwrit, did as he has done before here in the GIII Sam Davis as he sat back early on letting the early speed burners like State of Honor, lead the way early on but upon entering the far turn Tapwrit, started threading his way thru his tiring running mates then went around a tired front runner in State of Honor, to roll home to a convincing 4 1/2 lengths win in today’s GII Tampa Bay Derby .

State of Honor, did hold on for 2nd with Wild Shot, coming 3rd, as No Dozing filled out the super for this race

Gunnevera – winning the 2017 GII Fountain of Youth Stakes

Gunnevera, who was sitting dead last halfway down the back stretch did what any son good of Dialed In would do over this Gulfstream main track as he rallied up quickly 4 wide on the far turn to snag a lead near the top of stretch then rolled home to 5 3/4 lengths and widening win over Practical Joke and the front-running Three Rules, who were just heads apart for 2nd and 3rd respectively with Talk Logistics, filling out today’s super for you!

The 2/5 post time favorite in Irish War Cry, could do no better than a very distance 7th finish in this important 2017 Kentucky Derby prep race.

Gunnevera, now with 64 Kentucky Derby Points is the new king of the Derby Points leaderboard this week and gains a May 6th berth into this season’s GI Kentucky Derby off this impressive win.

agate-0
Arrogate – with Mike Smith on board winning today’s GI Breeders’ Cup Classic over California Chrome and giving trainer Bob Baffert his 3rd straight Breeders’ Cup Classic title!

California Chrome had it all his own way early grabbing the early pace and setting all the early factions, but the 2016 Travers champ Arrogate had other ideas as halfway down the stretch Arrogate went right on by California Chrome for the win by a half length.

2015 Travers winner Keen Ice was 3rd back 11 1/4 lengths more with Hoppertunity filling out the super back just a neck further!

Winning time 2:00.11
