He also trained Patch , which was the third-place finisher at Belmont. The already thin group of remaining horses lost another one of its favorites when Japan-based Epicharis failed the pre-race veterinary exam. Not a bad payday at all, but a little short of the $1.2 million that Tapwrit , the son of Tapit , had fetched at auction as a yearling.
