Tamit (Ire) unleashed a devastating stretch kick to graduate at first asking over the Keeneland lawn and become the latest ‘TDN Rising Star’ for the connections of champion Tepin (Bernstein). Taking a bit of play before drifting up to be 7-1 by post, the bay traveled third-last down the backside, well off of a :23.44 quarter and :49.17 half. Still with seven horses to pass at the top of the lane, Tamit exploded in the final furlong and kicked away strongly to score by 3 3/4 lengths. La Manta Gris (Lemon Drop Kid) was second-best. The winner’s dam, once third in the G1 Darley Yorkshire Oaks, is a half to G1SW Imperial Monarch (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), MGSW Mount Athos (Ire) (Montjeur {Ire}), and is a full to MG1SP The Great Gatsby (Ire) and G1SP Magritte (Ire).
