Full Tap proved a fine winner for the Stidham stable during a weekend when the majority of the barn’s arsenal hit the dart-board without quite hitting the bulls-eye!
Owned by Gainesway Stable and Cobra Farm, Full Tap was given a peach of a ride by jockey Mitchell Murrill, clearing away from the opposition to sluice past the post three-lengths too good. This four-year-old daughter of Tapit was claiming her second career victory, and on this evidence, she still has more to come.
Despite so many place-finishers, the Stidham horses in such flying form, and it’s a no-brainer who’s at the top of the trainer’s standings at Arlington Park. Stidham still leads Larry Rivelli with $547,610 in the kitty, and 26 victories on the board.
