After the fireworks of Breeders’ Cup weekend, the aftermath was always going to feel a little anti-climactic. But don’t get too down in the mouth – the silver lining of the annual winter meet at Fair Grounds hovers just days away!
But first, let’s get down to business, and the good form of the Stidham stable continued when Ms Advisor broke her maiden at Churchill Downs Wednesday, at the third attempt. Owned by Gary Davidson, Ms Advisor, a two-year-old filly by Street Boss, was always prominent under jockey Jack Gilligan, and turning into the stretch, they pulled away to win by a visually impressive five lengths.
This was a good run by an improving young filly, and don’t be surprised to see Ms Advisor go on to achieve bigger and better things in the future.
Here’s a look at our sole runner this weekend:
