Tapitsfly wins the 2012 Just a Game Stakes at Belmont Park

The $400,000 Just A Game Stakes (G1) featured a field of 7 older fillies and mares going 1 mile on the Widener turf course. Beaugay Stakes (G3) winner Winter Memories was sent off as the 6-5 favorite over 3-1 second choice Tapitsfly, second in the Distaff Turf Mile (G2), and 7-2 third choice Hungry Island, who won the Distaff Turf Mile.

Jockey Ramon Dominguez sent Tapitsfly to the lead exiting the chute and she set quick fractions of 23.47, 46.44, and 1:09.48 over the firm course while stalked by 10-1 Wallis. On the far turn, Tapitfly opened up a 2 length advantage on the field. Winter Memories, 5th early, put in a late rally which proved futile as Tapisfly finished 2 1/4 lengths in front in 1:32.34. It was another 1 3/4 lengths back to Hungry Island third.
