Tap City got the award for sweetest horse of the day when we did our Saturday listings. Despite having not worked in a few days, Tap City walked out of the barn on a loose lead clipped under his chin, head swinging side to side, relaxed and taking in the sights. His trainer reported this is his daily demeanor. He is always quiet, polite, and super cuddly! Because of his demeanor, he could be a good prospect for someone entering the world of OTTBs with the guidance of a trainer. We were equally impressed with his correct, balanced conformation. He is very nicely put together! After looking up his record, we realized we aren’t the only ones who saw the quality in this gentle guy. Tap City sold for $125,000 as a yearling. Wow! Although he was bred to clean up on the race track, it appears his heart really isn’t in the game. He has earned about $15,000 in his 18 starts with 1 win and 5 thirds. Tap City came back a bit sore from his last race so we did not take a video. We were told the vet said he would be fine to return to work after a full week or two off. We will get a video when we are at the track next, but since he will likely be ready before then, we suggest heading to the track to see this sweet boy in person! He is by Tapizar out of a Smarty Jones mare. A good home is a must and references will be requested.

As always, a pre-purchase veterinary exam is recommended.
