Remembering Pulpit

Pulpit, one of the best sons of A.P. Indy at the track and in the shed passed away yesterday at the age of 18 according to the Thoroughbred Daily News (TDN). The winner of the Fountain of Youth and Bluegrass Stakes, he was 4th in his final race the 1997 Kentucky Derby. As a sire, he was just as good. His son Tapit, won the 2004 Wood Memorial and has sired BC Juvenile races winners Stardom Bound and Hansen as well as this year's Dirt Mile winner Tapizar. Another son Sky Mesa won the 2002 Hopeful Stakes and is the sire of 2 time Grade 1 winner General Quarters. Pulpit is also the sire to the BC Dirt Mile winner Corinthian, UAE Derby winner Essence of Dubai and Forego winner Pyro among many other talented horses.

 

His dam, the Mr. Prospector mare Preach won the 1991 Frizette Stakes. This makes Pulpit, a 1/2 brother to stakes placed Tell It (Storm Cat).
