Tasso (horse)

Tasso (foaled April 20, 1983, in Florida) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Out of the mare Ecstacism, he was sired by Fappiano, a son of the very influential Champion sire Mr. Prospector.

Trained by Neil Drysdale for owner Gerald Robins, Tasso raced seven times at age two in 1985, scoring five wins with one second and one third. Ridden by Laffit Pincay, Jr., he finished first in races that included the Breeders' Futurity Stakes at Keeneland Race Course in Kentucky and the Del Mar Futurity at Del Mar Racetrack in California. For the most important race of the year for his age group, Tasso's owner had to pay a supplemental fee of $120,000 to enter the colt in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, which was raced that year at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York. His owner was rewarded for his belief in the colt when Tasso defeated Storm Cat by a nose to win the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Tasso's performances earned him U.S. Champion 2-Yr-Old Colt honors for 1985.

Racing at age three, Tasso again made seven starts, ending the season with two wins, two seconds, and two third-place finishes. He began his 3-year-old campaign with a three-length win in the Manassa Mauler Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack. However, he did not make it to the U.S. Triple Crown series, and his best performances came in the Gotham and Withers Stakes, in which he finished second. Sent out to race at age four, Tasso started nine times, winning twice and finishing in a dead heat for second behind winner Ferdinand in the Grade I Hollywood Gold Cup.

Retired to stud, Tasso has met with modest success. Since 2000, he has stood at the Janadriyah Stud Farm near Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, owned by Prince Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah.
