Tacitus

Kentucky Derby Horse Profile

Tacitus is a gray homebred of the impressive Juddmonte Farms and out of 2014 Champion Older Mare Close Hatches. Close Hatches finished 2nd to Beholder in the 2013 Breeders' Cup Distaff. Tacitus' pedigree suggests minimal concerns with the ability to hit the Kentucky Derby distance of 1 1/4 miles and his racing record shows he is on a roll in putting pieces together. With a win in two Derby prep races, the Wood at Aqueduct and the Tampa Bay Derby in Florida, he demonstrates a lot of upside to watch for while breezing at the track.
