2019 Stallion Roster

Our stallion, MAKE RESERVATIONS, will remain at $2,500 for the 2019 Breeding Season.

He is a registered New York Stallion and is nominated to the New York Stallion Stakes.

He has proven heart and resilience: in his only start, MAKE RESERVATIONS broke clean from the inside post and fought on to finish 3rd in a Maiden Special Weight at Aqueduct, despite coming out of the race with a career ending injury.

He entered stud in 2016 and his first crop of foals will be two-year-olds in 2019.


Make Reservations' sire is the three-time leading North American sire & leading yearling sire, TAPIT. TAPIT was the leading sire in North America in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and has sired earners of more than $135 million on the racetrack. TAPIT's countless stakes winners include three Grade 1 Belmont Stakes winners, Tapwrit (2017), Creator (2016), & Tonalist (2014). TAPIT currently stands at Gainsway for a 2019 stud fee of $225,000. Another son of Tapit currently standing in New York is Honorable Dillon (2019 Fee: $4,000 - Rockridge Stud). Previously standing in New York was TAPIT's son, Normandy Invasion (2019 Fee: $3,500 - Spendthrift Farm).

Grade 1 Belmont Stakes winner, Coastal. Make Reservations' third dam, After School, is by Grade 1 Belmont Stakes winner, Arts and Letters.
