Untapable to start in Haskell Invitational

Kentucky Oaks winner Untapable will make her next start versus the boys in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park.

Oceanport, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Kentucky Oaks winner Untapable will make her next start versus the boys in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park.

The racetrack sent a tweet Monday that the leading 3-year-old filly will go in the 1 1/8-mile stakes on Sunday, July 27.

"The filly is coming to the #Haskell! #Untapable will take on the boys w/ Rosie Napravnik in the irons. Is Untapable #uncatchable?" the tweet read.

Monday morning at Saratoga, Untapable worked five furlongs over the Oklahoma training track in 1:01.35.

"I was very pleased with her, she breezed extremely well," said trainer Steve Asmussen. "Weather permitting, we'll breeze her again next Monday and then plan to ship her to Monmouth either Wednesday or Thursday of race week."

Owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds, Untapable is coming off a 9 1/4-length victory in the Mother Goose Stakes on June 28 at Belmont Park. She won the Kentucky Oaks on May 2 by 4 1/2 lengths.

Untapable began the year with consecutive victories at Fair Grounds in the Rachel Alexandra Stakes and Fair Grounds Oaks. She's earned $1,304,725 in eight lifetime starts with six wins.

Five years ago, Rachel Alexandra won the Haskell over Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird. Rachel was later voted 2009 Horse of the Year and champion 3- year-old filly.
