Blue-blooded Multiple G1 Winner By Tapit

Constitution possesses all of the attributes to be the best son at stud by the world’s current leading sire, Tapit: elite cruising speed, tremendous efficiency of stride, ability to carry his speed over a route of ground, eye-grabbing looks and conformation, a red-hot female family, and the class that comes with being a multiple Grade 1 winner.

Not only was Constitution the first son of Tapit to win Grade 1 events in back-to-back seasons, he remains the fastest racehorse around two turns ever sired by Tapit. After becoming an undefeated Florida Derby-G1 winner as a 3-year-old in just his third start, Constitution returned at four to win the Donn Handicap-G1 - earning a giant 111 Beyer speed figure.

"It's a testament to the quality of horse he is—to go from a maiden to an allowance to a Grade One and to show a different running style and get some dirt in his face and put in an effort like that against much more seasoned horses."
-Todd Pletcher after 2014 Florida Derby

"The more people I talk to about this horse the more special he looks, as everyone who has been in contact with him has nothing but glowing things to say about him, from his physical and mental attributes to the extraordinary things he’s done on the racetrack."
-Steve Haskin
