Asmussen Works Untapable, Tapiture

Two of the outstanding 2-year-olds in the barn of trainer Steve Asmussen worked together on Monday at Churchill Downs.

Winchell Thoroughbreds' Untapable, winner over fillies in the Pocahontas (GII), and Ron Winchell's Tapiture, a narrowly-beaten third in the Iroquois (GIII), breezed five furlongs and hit the finish line together in 1:01.80. The duo covered the distance in fractions of :13.80 and :37.80 and galloped out six furlongs in 1:15.40.

Asmussen said Untapable's next start would come in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (GI) at Santa Anita on Saturday, Nov. 2. The Pocahontas is a Breeders' Cup "Win and You're In" Challenge Series race and her win earned the Tapit filly a spot in the starting gate for the Breeders' Cup race.

Tapiture, beaten two necks by Donegal Racing's Cleburne and Smart Cover in the Iroquois, will drop back into a maiden race. He finished second to Hopeful (GI) winner Strong Mandate in his debut in a Saratoga maiden race, his only other career start.
