While the busy week may have drawn a blank for the Stidham stable, a number of horses performed creditably.
None more so than Stellaris, who ran a barnstormer to be narrowly denied in a hot contest at Keeneland Wednesday.
Owned by Tom Van Meter and Stidham himself, Stellaris knuckled down to a three-way thriller along the Keeneland straight, only to be pushed out of it by a neck and a nose at the wire. Compensation awaits just around the corner, surely.
Today, Stidham has just the one runner: Gucci Brown at Hawthorne, with jockey Mitchell Murrill on board.
Don’t forget to check back in again next week.
