A successful first yearling sales season continues for Belmont Stakes (G1) winner TAPWRIT October 25 – 28 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October Yearlings Sale.
TAPWRIT has been a hit at yearling sales with nearly 20 percent of his yearlings sold selling for six figures to bring over 10 times his 2021 stud fee. At Keeneland in September, TAPWRIT also saw his half-sister to Grade 1 winner Princess Noor leave the ring on a bid of $685,000 with her connections thinking so highly of the filly that they didn’t allow her to be sold for that price.
The last time TAPWRIT’s yearlings went through Fasig-Tipton’s Kentucky sales ring in July, he had the most six-figure yearlings of any first crop sire. This month, he has 18 cataloged to help him repeat the feat in one of the final yearling sales of the year.
