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
