Tapiture made four starts, including a third place finish in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Chuchill Downs, before breaking his maiden in a 4 1/2-length romp in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes (Grade 2).
In his first start as a 3-year-old the Winchell Thoroughbreds homebred won the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes in impressive fashion. The Tapit colt then finished second in the Rebel and fourth in the Arkansas Derby, amassing enough points to cement his place in the 2014 Kentucky Derby starting gate.
