The Stidham stable is counting down the minutes until the Saturday of this year’s Breeders’ Cup, when Empyrean Stables’ Zipessa lines up in the $2 million GI Fillies and Mares Turf. Exciting times ahead!
And tomorrow, we’ll give you the exclusive inside scoop on how she’s doing, as well as her chances on becoming her trainer’s very first Breeders’ Cup victor.
(That being said, Stidham does already have a third place Breeders’ Cup finish under his belt, when Willcox Inn ran a barn-stormer in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf).
Until then, there’s still plenty more action to whet the whistle. Here’s a look at the stable’s weekend entries:
Time Step – Race 5, Maiden Claiming $15,000
Proforma – Race 7, Maiden Special Weight
Guernsey – Race 5, Maiden Special Weight
Heart Stopper – Race 6, Starter Optional Claiming
