Tater Tutt wins yet again

December 28, 2007 · By · Share

You might say that Tater Tutt literally ran himself right out of his shoes this afternoon winning in wire-to-wire fashion at Aqueduct.  Tater Tutt broke awkwardly and actually exchanged bumps at the start.  During the process it looks as if he lost a shoe.  Tater Tutt rushed to the lead and set sharp early fractions of 22.1 and 45 flat.  Tater Tutt opened up a daylight lead at the top of the stretch then dug in resolutely along the inside to score by three-quarters of a length.  Tater Tutt covered the six-furlongs in a strong 1:09.2.

Jockey Mike Luzzi said, "This is such a fun horse to ride.  We had a bit of a bad break, but I got him to the lead.  When he gets to the lead he gets awfully brave.  I asked him to keep going for me, and he did."

Rick Violette's assistant Rusty Myers said, "He ran a great race.  He lost a shoe during the race.  It might have been at the start, He was very courageous and ran really hard.  He's turned into a horse that really likes to win.  That's four out of his last five races now.  I think we can all get used to this."

Tatter Tutt is a three-year-old son of Untuttable.  He has won four of his last five races, and he earned $31,800 for the win.  His career earnings now stand at $97,755 from only eight career starts.
