Tap It All and jockey Kyle Frey win the California Oaks by 1 3/4 lengths.

Tap It All  cantered on the lead while setting a moderate pace as she scored a wire-to-wire victory in the $53,150 California Oaks at Golden Gate Fields on Saturday.

Tap It All, an $800,000 purchase, got the jump on odds-on favorite Tapped and was never seriously challenged in the 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-old fillies. Ridden by Kyle Frey, she set fractions of 25.09 seconds, 49.62, and 1:13.79 en route to the 1 3/4-length victory in 1:45.12. Shari, third early but shuffled back heading into the lane, rallied for third, three-quarters of a length behind Tapped.

Tap It All ($12.40), third in her only other start here Nov. 16 behind rivals Peaked and Smiling Ann, went to Turf Paradise after that race and scored a 13 1/4-length maiden victory. She had the lead in the lane in the Blue Norther in her next start before finishing third in a three-way photo.

Trainer Doug O’Neill said the commanding victory in Arizona gave Tap It All “a lot  of confidence.”

A  daughter of Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Tapizar, Tap It All is the first foal of stakes-winning Yawkey Way. She is owned by ERJ Racing LLC and Reddam Racing LLC. She earned $30,450 to increase her bankroll to $95,760.

The O'Neill, Reddam, and Gutierrez, combination, minus Mario, did it again (that was hard to type), they are so good together, including two Kentucky Derbies, that it's hard to see them without Mario.  But congrats!!! Wish I was a small part of that winning combo.....
