Untapable Trains in Saratoga for the Haskell - VIDEO

Untapable is stabled in Steve Asmussen’s Saratoga barn to prepare for her battle with the boys in the $1,000,000 Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on Sunday, July 27th.

On Friday, Opening Day at the Spa, the daughter of Tapit had a light day of training. This morning she walked the barn area with her exercise rider in the saddle. Enjoy the VIDEO and watch the mild mannered Untapable stretch her legs and then get a bath.


Untapable will be attempting to join Serena's Song and Rachel Alexandra as the third filly to win the Haskell. Rosie Napravnik will again have the mount, as they try and add to the horse’s four race win streak.
