Gainesway has released stud fees for its 2018 roster, and Tapit, the leading North American sire in 2014, 2015, and 2016, will again command a $300,000 fee and his book will be limited to 125 mares.
Tapit increased his lifetime tally of Grade 1 winners to 23 in 2017. Tapwrit became his sire’s third Belmont Stakes (G1) winner in four years, Dream Dancing captured the Del Mar Oaks (G1)to become Tapit’s fourth Grade 1 winner on the grass, and millionaire Cupid stretched his speed to 10 furlongs in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita (G1).
Tapit also had a sensational season in the sale ring. Tapit’s Keeneland September yearlings averaged $950,000—the sale’s highest sire average since 2006. Tapit sired the year’s top three highest-priced yearlings sold in North America: a $2.7 million full-sister to Cupid, a $2.6 million colt out of Miss Besilu, and a $2.5 million colt out of Tiz Miz Sue.
Mares in foal to Tapit have sold for up to $1.9 million in 2017.
