The Stidham barn enjoyed a nice across-the-card double over the weekend, courtesy of Warriorscmoutoplay and Kids Rule.
Owned in syndicate by Feel The Thunder Stable, Breeheim, Herman, and Haynes Stables LLC, Warriorscmoutoplay got the ball rolling with a tough and seasoned performance at Keeneland Saturday, passing the post a head to the good under Jamie Theriot.
A day later at Hawthorne, Kids Rule showed the same kind of unbending resolve for Timothy Thornton when winning tidily for owners Twin Creeks Racing Stables, LLC and Brent Gasaway.
As for this week, Stidham has Candy Cate and La Bruna Forte engaged at Indiana Grand Racecourse Wednesday, with Stellaris entered over at Keeneland. One day later, Hartford Road goes for gold over at Hawthorne.
For some long range forecasts, both Ike Walker and Jessica’s Star could run at Churchill Downs on Derby day.
Now, as promised last week, we have news of some of Stidham’s headline performers:
Her Emmynency: She arrived at Arlington yesterday with a batch of Dawn and Ike Thrash’s two-year-olds. Her Emmynency has already done a fair bit of ground work, and Stidham expects to have her out within a couple of months, provided her training schedule runs glitch free.
“She’s put on weight and is now a strong looking three-year-old,” said Stidham “We’re looking forward to Her Emmynency resuming her career.”
Ground Transport: He’s ready to have his first breeze at the training center where he’s holidayed.
Tootsie Rules: She’s going to come back into training very soon.
Pirate’s Trove: She and Leigh Court are poised to come back into training at Arlington in the next couple of weeks.
Don’t forget to catch up with us later in the week.
