Mike Stidham’s runners are dotted all over the country this weekend, with four runners at three different tracks over the next two days, one of which is in a stake race.
I Dazzle is looking to regain the winning thread when she lines up tomorrow in the Louisiana Cup Distaff Stakes at Louisiana Downs – a $75,000 race over one and one sixteenth miles. I Dazzle faces ten other rivals, and jockey Jamie Theriot takes the mount. I Dazzle started her stint in the Stidham barn in fine fashion with a couple of tidy wins, one of which was in the Red Camelia Stakes at Fair Grounds in March. Upped in class thereafter, I Dazzle has found the going a little tougher of late, but with Stidham in such red-hot form of late, it would be far from a surprise to see her roar back to form.
Today, Follow the Kitten and Scrumpdilicious are Stidham’s representatives at Arlington. While on Saturday, Her Emmynency holds an engagement at Del Mar.
Check back in again next week for a round-up of the weekend action.
