Tapizar Sets Sights on San Fernando

Tapizar takes the Sham

Corey Nakatani is looking forward to reuniting with Tapizar in next Saturday’s Grade II, $150,000 San Fernando Stakes at 1 1/16 miles. Nakatani rode last year’s Sham Stakes winner to victory at Belmont Park on Oct. 8 in their lone union together.


“He’s very fast,” Nakatani said of the 4-year-old Tapit colt trained by Steve Asmussen. “They’re going to have to pick their feet up to beat him. I worked him twice going six furlongs and he went well.”


Tapizar was fifth in his last start, the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on Nov. 5. Owned and bred by Winchell Thoroughbreds, Tapizar has three wins from eight starts with earnings of $173,032.


Probable for the San Fernando: Balladry, Garrett Gomez; Irish Art, no rider; Prayer for Relief, Rafael Bejarano; and Tapizar, Nakatani.

I heard Baffert say his colt Genius was to join Prayer for Relief in the race.
