Alan Porter Breeding Analysis for Race Day

Race Day is an impressive multiple graded stakes winner by Tapit, out of a half-sister to four time grade one winner Lite Light, from a powerful branch of the La Troienne family.

Tapit has enjoyed remarkable success with mares carrying Storm Cat, who appears in 13 of his stakes winners, 11 graded, and three grade one. These includes Champion Hansen out of mare by Sir Cat, grade one winners out of mares by Hennessy and Tabasco Cat, and graded stakes winners out of mares by Menifee, Harlan’s Holiday, Catienus, Forestry and Giant’s Causeway. From daughters of Deputy Minister, Tapit has sired grade one winners Frosted and Tapizar, and graded winner Tin Type Gal. He also has graded stakes winner Delightful Joy out of a mare by Graeme Hall, a son of the Deputy Minister stallion, Dehere. Nijinsky II appears in the pedigree of eight Tapit stakes winners, including in the broodmare sire line of grade one winner Tapitsfly (dam by Marlin, a son of Sword Dance) and graded winner Endymion (dam by Shadeed, the sire of Alydeed), with other sources including Royal Academy, Seattle Dancer, Sky Classic and Strawberry Road. From daughters of the Sadler’s Wells horse, El Prado, Tapit has sired grade one winner Laragh and graded winner White Rose. Out of mares from the Danzig line, Tapit has stakes winners from daughters of Boundary, Danzig Connection and Belong to Me. Out of mares descending from Icecapade – a three-quarters relative to Northern Dancer – Tapit has a grade one winner out of a mare by Wild Again and a stakes winners out of a mare by Wild Rush and Phone Trick.

Tapit has enjoyed success with some specific branches of Mr. Prospector, notably Gone West, including through Mr. Greeley and Grand Slam; Forty Niner, including through Distorted Humor; Carson City; Cryptoclearance; and Unbridled’s Song.

Tapit’s third dam is a sister to the influential sire, Relaunch, and he has six stakes winners out of mares with Relaunch in the dam, including out of daughters of Honour and Glory and Bertrando, as well as Relaunch himself, suggesting daughters of Tiznow. Tapit has a grade one placed stakes winner out of a mare by Cherokee Run, a son of the Blushing Groom horse, Runaway Groom, and he also has a graded stakes winner out of a mare by Blushing Groom son, Shy Tom. Tapit also has two stakes winners, one graded, out of mares by In Excess and another out of a mare Indian Charlie. He has classic winner Tonalist out of a mare by Pleasant Colony, and a grade one winner out of a mare by Concern, who is by Broad Brush, a horse who has done well under Tapit’s sire, Pulpit, and who is also sire of Include.
