2YO SILENT TAP Gets Maiden Win on Fair Grounds Turf

With Maiden Special Weight placings already on both dirt and turf, SILENT TAP took the lead near the top of the stretch and drew clear to take this about one mile turf event at Fair Grounds by 1 3/4 lengths. The 2-year-old son of MOHAYMEN, and his 18th first-crop winner, raced along in second, no more than two lengths back of the pacesetter. SILENT TAP moved up to force the pace around the far turn, went up to seize the lead near the top of the lane, then was never really threatened to the wire. SILENT TAP was bred by Veloce LLC out of the Cherokee Run mare, Silentlea.
