Tapizar Sires First Foals

Stallion's first reported foals, a colt and a filly, were born Jan. 6.

Tapizar , winner of the 2012 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (gr. I), sired his first two reported foals when both a colt and filly were born Jan. 6.

The bay colt is out of the winning mare Palm Beach Story, by Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Fusaichi Pegasus , and was foaled at Gunston Hall Farm near Lexington. Palm Beach Story is a daughter of multiple graded stakes winner Rare Blend, and half sister to grade III winner Rare Gift.

"He is a good-bodied, well-balanced colt. We are very pleased with him," said Gunston Hall's Larman Cowles in a release.

The bay filly is out of the Storm Cat mare Ominous Cat, a daughter of dual grade I winner Fleet Renee. Co-owned by Ron Winchell's Winchell Thoroughbreds and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm, the Tapizar filly was foaled at WinStar near Versailles, Ky.

"She is a correct, good-boned, well-made filly," said Elliott Walden, president and CEO of WinStar, in a statement.

Gainesway's Michael Hernon added: "Tapizar, the leading miler at stud by his sire, Tapit, proved very popular with breeders in 2013, and he is again in strong demand for 2014 at $15,000 stands and nurses."
