Ron Winchell's homebred Untapable, the Eclipse Award-winning 3-year-old champion of 2014, has officially been retired. Winchell announced the 5-year-old daughter of Tapit's retirement via Twitter on Sunday evening:
“Untapable is officially being retired,” wrote Winchell. “After having a truly great 3-year-old season and currently the number one US earner of Tapit – it's time!”
Trained over the course of her career by Steve Asmussen, Untapable's 3-year-old season was the highlight of her career. She captured the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks and the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Distaff, as well as G1 wins in the Mother Goose and the G1 Cotillion.
She came back to win the Grade 1 Apple Blossom as a 4-year-old, and placed second or third in three additional Grade 1 Stakes that year.
In 2016, Untapable ran second in the Azeri to kick off her season, then she finished fourth as the heavy favorite in both the Apple Blossom and Saturday night's Fleur de Lis Handicap.
Untapable retires with a career record of nine wins, five seconds and two thirds from 20 lifetime starts and earnings of $3,926,625.
