In the name of her Whisper Hill Farm, Mandy Pope went to $1.3 million for a son of Tapit out of MSW & GSP Danzatrice (Dunkirk) at the 2021 Keeneland September, and that looked like money well spent when Tapit Trice went on to a victory in the 2023 GI Toyota Blue Grass S. while placing in the GI Belmont S. and GI Travers S. Pope was so enamored of her purchase that she went back to the well at the 2022 September sale, giving $1.1 million for the colt's full-sister, DANZIT, who makes her first trip to the races Sunday. Also trained by Todd Pletcher, the March foal is out of a close relative to champion and GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies victress Jaywalk (Cross Traffic) and the deeper female family includes the sires Mission Impazible and Forest Camp. Among the competition is Silver Moonlight (Liam's Map), a half-brother to the Grade III-placed juvenile Man Child (Creative Cause), who was a $150,000 KEESEP yearling before doubling that hammer price at last year's OBS March Sale.
