A stakes winner back in January, TARIS was making her second start off a six-month lay-off. In her first start back off the layoff, she ran a 102 Beyer winning a six-furlong allowance race by 7 3/4 lengths (in 1:08 1/5) on the all-weather surface at Presque Isle Downs on September 10. This 3-year-old filly by FLATTER faced 10 rivals, four already Graded SWs, in Keeneland’s Grade 2 Lexus Raven Run S. Breaking from post four, TARIS took the lead early and was on top by a length after the first quarter run in :22 2/5. She continued to maintain the lead getting the half in :44 4/5 and the six furlongs in 1:08 4/5. And through her stretch run the lead expanded from three lengths to nine lengths by the time she hit the wire. The final time for the seven furlongs was 1:21 1/5, a new track record on this newly installed dirt track. She was awarded a 110 Beyer Speed Figure, the highest Beyer of any 3-year-old filly in the country this year.
