Trappe Shot, who made a big splash as a sale horse, could be on the verge of
becoming an important racehorse. He has yet to make his stakes debut,
but some people think he could be the best 3-year-old around.
A son of Tapit
trained by Kiaran Laughlin for Mill House, Trappe Shot is undefeated in
three races this year and in his most recent effort cruised to a
four-length victory in a seven-furlong allowance race on the June 5
Belmont Stakes (gr. I) undercard. In two previous 2010 starts against
fellow Florida-breds at Gulfsteam Park, the chestnut colt triumphed by
10 ¼ lengths and 12 ¾ lengths.
