Pope Goes To $1.3M for Tapit Colt


Hip 331 | Keeneland

Mandy Pope made her first big splash at the 2021 Keeneland September Sale, going to $1.3 million for Gainesway's hip 331. The Lexington nursery acquired the colt's dam Danzatrice (Dunkirk) for $105,000 at the 2014 OBS April Sale and raced her to seven victories, including a trio at black-type level and a third-place effort in the GIII Groupie Doll S. Danzatrice is a half-sister to Eclipse Award winner Jaywalk (Cross Traffic), who is a maternal granddaughter of the late Unbridled's Song the same as Danzatrice. Mandy Pope paid $3.8 million for Unrivaled Belle (Unbridled's Song), the dam of multiple champion Unique Bella (Tapit) and carrying a full-sibling to that one at Keeneland November in 2016.
