Tap It To Win

Trainer Mark Casse won the Belmont Stakes last year with Sir Winston and will look to become the first conditioner in nearly a quarter century to go back-to-back in the Classic, as Tap It to Win will take the step up in class.

The Tapit colt is 2-for-2 to start his sophomore campaign, coming off a seven-month layoff to win an allowance optional claimers on May 9 at Gulfstream Park. Casse brought him back on June 4 at Belmont Park, where Tap It to Win handled the 1 1/16-mile distance with aplomb, romping the eight-horse field by five lengths.

With the Belmont Stakes this year at 1 1/8 miles on Big Sandy, the Florida homebred will look to stretch out and produce another stellar effort on the famous course.

Casse, elected to the Hall of Fame in May, is looking to become the first trainer to win consecutive Belmonts since fellow Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas won three in a row from 1994-96.
