Tapiture filly gets first graded stakes victory

Alway’s Comerio became Tapiture’s latest graded stakes winner on March 7 when the 3-year-old filly bounded to a one-length victory in the Clasico Dia de la Mujer S. (G2) at Camarero Race Track in Puerto Rico.

Alway’s Comerio, who was graded placed at two, is the eighth overall stakes winner for Tapiture. The Darby Dan stallion leads the Third-Crop Cumulative Sire list by both winners and wins. His 4-year-old colt Jesus’s Team, who placed second in the Jan. 23 Pegasus World Cup (G1), is scheduled to start in the Dubai World Cup (G1) later this month.

Alway’s Comerio has won three of her six lifetime starts, all in Puerto Rico, for owner Establo Comerio. She was bred in Kentucky by DPS Racing and is the first foal out of the Uncle Mo mare Aunt Maryann.

Multiple graded stakes winner Tapiture has been one of the most popular sons of Tapit at stud, averaging 165 mares per book in his first five seasons. He’s standing this year for $10,000 S&N.
