It’s been all quiet on the western front for the Stidham stable all week. But that is set to change today, with runners spread far and wide across the nation through the weekend.
All Eyes will be undoubtedly be on Katie tomorrow in the Unbridled Sidney Stakes at Churchill Downs tomorrow. Katie’s Eyes is one of ten scheduled to line up in the $65,000 race over five furlongs on the turf, and is a 5-2 chance on the early Morning Line. Florent Geroux takes the mount.
Katie’s Eyes, owned by Dawn and Ike Thrash and Janet and Sam Alley, is looking to extend her unbeaten record since joining the Stidham barn. And last time out, she trounced the field in the Giants Causeway Stakes at Keeneland.
Masquerade runs on the Churchill Downs undercard, while Warriorscomoutoplay runs there Sunday. Gucci Brown heads to Prairie Meadows Sunday, too.
As expected, Stidham will unleash the majority of his runners at Arlington.
Today: Thestarvingartist and La Luna Rouge.
Saturday: Hadrian and Kingston Terrace
Sunday: Candy Cate, Royal and Ready and Ricko Man.
We also have an update on the two-year-olds. Eleven of them had their first easy bit of work earlier this week, and Stidham was delighted with how they went. “So far, so good,” was the official report!
Don’t forget to check back in again early next week for the weekend review.
