In her first start against older horses, Untapable capped a stellar 3-year-old season that included wins in the Kentucky Oaks and Mother Goose Stakes with a 1 1/4 length victory in the Longines Distaff as the 3-2 favorite.

"Today definitely makes her a champion," said trainer Steven Asmussen, who trains the homebred Tapit filly for Winchell Thoroughbreds.

Racing in sixth through the first three-quarters, Untapable moved to the outside as the field entered the stretch, taking the lead from Iotapa and drawing away under urging to complete the 1 1/8 mile race in 1:48.68. Don't Tell Sophia got up for second after rallying from far off the pace.

While Untapable's performance made the Distaff an unforgettable race, it was jockey Rosie Napravnik's post-race announcement that drew the bigger gasps — flush from winning the $2 million race with the filly she's piloted to four Grade 1 wins this year, Napravnik announced that she would retire following Breeders' Cup weekend to dedicate herself to her family.
