Thanksgiving it may be, but that doesn’t stop Mike Stidham from sending out a whole raft of runners this week, with entries far flung across the board.
Tomorrow, stable stalwart Ground Transport is one of eleven to contest the $100,000 Swatara Stakes at Penn National. A fine second in the Michael G. Schaefer Memorial Stakes last time out, Ground Transpoprt is an early morning line 7-2 shot to go one better this time under jockey Trevor McCarthy. Over at Churchilll Downs the same day, Helen Kathleen bids to add to her two wins already this season.
While the rest of the nation settles down to their turkey dinner, Stidham will be saddling a brace of runners at Fair Grounds: Holiday Touch and Fantasize. While Black Friday sees entries for Royal Kona Queen, Table Three Ten, La Luna Rouge and Toutsie Rules.
Check back in again later this week for a round-up of the week’s action, and a look ahead to what the weekend has to offer.
And Happy Thanksgiving!
