Signator Off Derby Trail

TDN Rising Star Signator (Tapit), eighth on this week’s TDN Derby Top 12, has been taken out of training for 60 days and is off the GI Kentucky Derby trail, according to a tweet from co-owner West Point Thoroughbreds. A winner Oct. 14 at the Belmont at Aqueduct meet, Signator was a $1.7-million purchase at last spring’s OBS April sale. His latest setback comes after three breezes following a wrenched ankle in the fall.

Bred by Gainesway Thoroughbreds and trained by Shug McGaughey, Signator is also owned by the partnership of Woodford Racing, Gainesway Stable, Phipps Stable, Ken Langone, Edward Hudson, Jr., and Lane’s End Racing.
