Grade 2-Placed Tight Ten Retired To Mountain Springs Farm In Pennsylvania

Tight Ten, a multiple graded stakes-placed son of Tapit, enters stud in 2021 at the new Mountain Springs Farm in Palmyra, Pa.

Tight Ten is by three-time leading sire Tapit out of a Distorted Humor mare, the same as leading second-crop sire Constitution.

After easily breaking his maiden at Churchill Downs in wire-to-wire fashion by more than four lengths, Tight Ten next ran second by one length in the historic Grade 2 Saratoga Special Stakes after leading in mid-stretch. In his third career start, Tight Ten led for the entire trip of the 1 1/16 mile G3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs until he was caught in the final strides to finish second.

In his final start at two, the $2-million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, Tight Ten hit the inner rail shortly after the start and emerged with a torn hind-end ligament. He returned to win a one-mile allowance race at age four, and retired with earnings of $132,369.

Standing 16.1 hands with outstanding athletic conformation Tight Ten will stand for an introductory fee of $2,500 live foal. Additional mares can be bred for $2,000 each.

A lifetime breeding right to Tight Ten will be awarded to breeders after booking four mares.

Tight Ten will stand at the new 200-acre Mountain Springs Farm. With facilities rivaling any in the state, the experienced horsemen at Mountain Springs Farm provide excellent mare and foal care at affordable rates.

Tight Ten is nominated for the Breeders’ Cup and is eligible for the Pennsylvania-bred program.
