DISARM (c, 4, Gun Runner–Easy Tap, by Tapit), a 'TDN Rising Star', was a major player on last year's Triple Crown trail, hitting the board in both the GII Louisiana Derby and the GIII Lexington S. before running fourth behind Mage (Good Magic) in the GI Kentucky Derby. Fourth again in the GII Jim Dandy S., he chased home champion 3-year-old male Arcangelo (Arrogate) to be second in the GI Travers S. in his last start. On the bench since, the homebred returned Saturday with the distance cutback facing just three rivals. Bet all the way down to 1-9, he broke straight to the lead and lulled his rivals to sleep on the front end through fractions of :25.74 and :52.01. Onthestage (Quality Road) threatened briefly as the real running began inside the final furlong but Disarm was game and kept that rival at bay to win by 1 1/2 lengths in his return. Easy Tap, already responsible for Total Tap (Candy Ride {Arg}), MSP, $221,112 and Tap Daddy (Scat Daddy), Ch. Stayer-Ven, SW & GSP-USA, MSW-Ven, $252,384, has Disarm's 2-year-old full-brother, a yearling Silver State filly and another full-brother born this year. Lifetime Record: GISP, 10-3-3-2, $1,077,120.
