Intrepid Heart

Intrepid Heart is a Kentucky-bred son of Tapit, who is also seeking a fourth Belmont Stakes winner after siring three of the past five winners, with Tonalist (2014), Creator (2016) and Tapwrit (2017).

Intrepid Heart romped to victory in his debut by 7 ¾ lengths at Oaklawn Park before a victory against winners at Keeneland. Last out, he stumbled at the gate before rallying late to finish third in the Grade 3 Peter Pan, the traditional Belmont Park prep for the Belmont Stakes.
