Tapit Colt Tops Keeneland July Digital Sale


Steve Asmussen | Sarah Andrew

Best Time (Tapit), a 3-year-old maiden colt out of champion 2-year-old filly Take Charge Brandi (Giant's Causeway), topped Keeneland's July Digital Sale Tuesday on a winning bid of $29,500. The regally bred gray was consigned by Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency as hip 6, and was purchased by trainer Steve Asmussen's KDE Equine. The Hall of Fame conditioner has been training Best Time for Phoenix Thoroughbred III and co-breeder Hill 'n' Dale. Third in maiden special weight sprints at Indiana and Ellis to begin his career, the colt was most recently seventh trying a mile at Ellis on Sunday. A $775,000 Keeneland September buyback, Best Time hails from the prepotent family of GISWs Omaha Beach, Take Charge Lady, Will Take Charge and Take Charge Indy. Four of 10 offerings changed hands during the online auction for gross receipts of $70,000. Visit keenelanddigital.com for more.
