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.”
