Tapizar Ready for Strub Stakes

15 January 2011: Tapizar and Garrett Gomez win the Sham Stakes at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, CA.

Tapizar finished fifth in his lone race at 1 1/8 miles, last year’s Robert Lewis Stakes. The rousing, front-running winner of the Grade II San Fernando Stakes at 1 1/16 miles on Jan. 14 will try the nine-furlong distance again in next Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Strub Stakes, and Team Asmussen is confident the son of Tapit is up to the assignment.


“The horse is doing good,” said Asmussen assistant Scott Blasi. “I haven’t seen the PP’s (past performances of the Strub), but he’s a free-running horse and (Corey) Nakatani did a great job with him (in the San Fernando), so we’ll see what happens.”


Balladry, second  by 3 ½ lengths to Tapizar in the San Fernando, is set to take him on again in the Strub. Joe Talamo retains the mount for trainer Eoin Harty.
