Tater Tutt wins three in a row
With a writer's strike looming in Hollywood, television viewers are expected to see lots of reruns this winter. However, in racing, reruns are not always bad. When a horse has won two races in a row, you'd like to rerun those races as many times as possible. Tater Tutt followed the script perfectly and extended his winning streak to three scoring a wire-to-wire victory in a starter allowance at Aqueduct. Tater Tutt broke well, set blazing early fractions and improved his position to the wire stopping the teletimer for six-furlongs in a strong 1:09.2.
Trainer Rick Violette's assistant Melissa said, "I think Tater Tutt is getting used to getting his picture made. He has always had a ton of speed, but we had to get him to finish his races. He's really put it together this fall, and he's shown us the ability to carry his speed further. These last two races were very impressive."
Jockey Mike Luzzi said, "These are the easiest races to run. I did the exact same thing I did last time, and he ran the exact same kind of race. I was even able to take hold of him a little bit in the last thirty yards. He ran them off their feet."
Tater Tutt's career record now stands at three wins from six starts. The three-year-old son of Untuttable has now banked over $64,000.
