With two more wins on the board this weekend alone, the question on everyone’s lips is this one: can Mike Stidham clinch the trainer’s title at Fair Grounds?
Redmoor, a three-year-old daughter of Speightstown, produced a power-packed display Saturday to win by nearly ten lengths under Mitchell Murrill. Owned by Mark Breen, Redmoor was shrugging the monkey from her back, and with this nice confidence booster under her belt, she looks to have a bright future ahead of her.
Today, Conquest Tiz One gained her second career victory with a professional display under Jose Valdivia Jr. Owned by Panic Stable, Conquest Tiz One was always to the fore, holding on under a strong ride to prevail by three-quarters-of-a-length.
With these victories, Stidham still sits atop the table at Fair Grounds, with $1,032,365 in the piggy bank, and 32 winners on the board. Here are the week’s entries:
