SIEM RIEP Earns First Stakes Win on Derby Weekend at Churchill Downs

An $80,000 purchase from ELiTE’s inaugural consignment at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton Horses of Racing Age Sale, SIEM RIEP picked up his first Stakes win for owner Marc Detampel and trainer Ben Colebrook.

The hard-knocking, 5yo son of Tapit was purchased by Detampel fresh off of his maiden-breaking win and has since picked up 5 wins, 4 seconds and 2 thirds, going on to earn $295,011.

Many congratulations to Marc and the Colebrook team- patience was finally rewarded!
