Untapable blazes through workout
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Arcadia, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kentucky Oaks winner Untapable and stablemate Tapiture each had five-furlong workouts Sunday morning at Santa Anita ahead of starts in the upcoming Breeders' Cup.
Both trained by Steve Asmussen, Untapable went the five furlongs in 58.60 seconds and Tapiture, the West Virginia Derby winner, was timed in 59.60 seconds. The filly will start in the Distaff and Tapiture the Dirt Mile, both on Oct. 31.
"They're getting over the track really well. They've settled in nicely," Asmussen said.
Untapable, owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds, most recently won the Cotillion Stakes at Parx Racing in her first start since finishing fifth as the 7-5 favorite versus males in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on July 27.
The filly began the year with consecutive victories at Fair Grounds in the Rachel Alexandra and Fair Grounds Oaks. She won the Kentucky Oaks on May 2 by 4 1/2 lengths and posted a 9 1/4-length victory in the Mother Goose Stakes on June 28 at Belmont Park.
Untapable has earned nearly $1.9 million in 10 lifetime starts with seven wins.
