Tasso

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
L. Pincay Jr.
Trainer: 
N. Drysdale
Owner: 
Gerald Robins
Breeder: 
Gerald Robins and Timothy Sams

Sent off as the third choice in a field of 13, Tasso rallied to nip Storm Cat by a nose and give Hall of Fame jockey Laffit Pincay Jr. the first of seven Breeders’ Cup victories and Hall of Fame trainer Neil Drysdale his second Breeders’ Cup triumph. Left in Tasso’s wake that day was Danzig Connection, who won the Belmont Stakes the following year. Tasso earned the Eclipse Award as champion 2-year-old in 1985.

One of two supplemental entrants and the first of four Florida-breds to win at the 1985 Championships, Tasso won his first race in his second start on July 22, 1985 at Hollywood Park. In addition to his Breeders’ Cup victory, Tasso won four others stakes, including the Del Mar Futurity (Grade 1) and the Breeders’ Futurity (G2) at Keeneland. During his career, Tasso recorded victories at four tracks.
