Asmussen was born into a racing family as his father and mother are both trainers and his brother Cash is a champion jockey. Steve has trained over 6000 winners and in 2009, shattered his own record for wins in a single year with 650 earning the Eclipse Award as the nation’s top trainer. Asmussen trained back-to-back Horse of the Year’s in Curlin and Rachel Alexandra and undefeated Eclipse Champion juvenile filly My Miss Aurelia in 2011.Other top runners include Kentucky Oaks winner Summerly, Regally Ready, Majesticperfection, Kodiak Kowboy, Haynesfield, Wilburn and Pyro.
The Winchell family won the 2005 Kentucky Oaks with Summerly, and have made five starts in the Kentucky Derby: 1981 Classic Go Go, 4th; 1994 Valiant Nature, 13th; 2004 Tapit, 9th; 2007 Zanjero, 12th; 2008 Pyro, 8th. They were represented in 2010 by their homebred stakes winner Remit and as breeder of Paddy O’ Prado who finished third in Kentucky Derby 136. Winchell has a promising Kentucky Derby contender in Tapizar who most recently won the Grade III Sham Stakes at Santa Anita. Winchell Thoroughbreds is owned by Joan and her son Ron who took over the business when his father Verne passed away due to a heart attack in 2002. Ron owns a chain of restaurants in Las Vegas called Winchell’s Pub and Grill. They have raced graded stakes winners: War Echo, Hightap, Cuvee, Olympio, Sea Cadet, and Valiant Nature. They own Corinthia Farm near Lexington, Kentucky. Joan and Ron Winchell both reside in Las Vegas.
Untapable is by Grade 1-winning leading stallion Tapit, who only raced six times but has sired champions Stardom Bound and Hansen.
Tapit’s offspring run the gamut from dirt runners to turf, sprint to routes, and includes Grade 1 queens Tapitsfly, Careless Jewel and Zazu, the latter of whom finished third in the 2011 Kentucky Oaks; 2012 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Tapizar; and current Kentucky Derby hopefuls Tapiture and Ring Weekend.
Untapable’s dam is the Grade 2-winning Prized mare Fun House, who competed on turf for the majority of her career.
Fun House’s first notable offspring, Paddy O’Prado, followed in his dam’s hoofsteps by making most of his starts on turf, including a Grade 1 victory going 10 furlongs at Arlington Park. However, the gray son of El Prado was just as formidable on dirt and synthetics, running third in the 2010 Kentucky Derby and second in that same year’s Blue Grass.
Untapable has yet to try turf, though she did finish third in last year’s Hollywood Starlet on the Cushion Track at Hollywood Park. Despite her dam’s propensity for turf, the bay filly’s female family is chock full of stellar main track runners.
Untapable’s female line includes the likes of Olympio, a Grade 1 winner on turf who ran fourth in the Preakness and captured four Grade 2s on dirt, and his Grade 2-scoring half-sister Call Now, who is the grandam of Tapizar; yet another Tapit filly in Grade 3 heroine War Echo; and Grade 1 victors Pyro and Cuvee.
