Edited Press Release - December 2, 2020
Tight Ten, a multiple graded stakes placed son of Tapit, will enter stud in 2021 at the new Mountain Springs Farm in Palmyra, Pa.
TIGHT TEN, like leading-crop sire Constitution, is sired by three-time leading sire TAPIT out of a DISTORTED HUMOR dam.
After easily breaking his maiden at Churchill Downs in wire-to-wire fashion by more than four lengths TIGHT TEN next ran second by one length in the historic Saratoga Special-G2 after leading in mid-stretch. In his third career start TIGHT TEN led for the entire trip of the 1 1/16 mile Iroquois S-G3 at Churchill Downs until caught in the final strides to finish second.
In his final start at two, the $2,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile-G1, TIGHT TEN hit the inner rail shortly after the start and emerged with a torn hind-end ligament. He returned to win a one mile allowance race at age four, and retired with earnings of $132,369.
Standing 16.1 hands with outstanding athletic conformation TIGHT TEN will stand for an introductory fee of $2,500 live foal. Additional mares can be bred for $2,000 each.
A lifetime breeding right to TIGHT TEN will be awarded to breeders after booking four mares.
