The Stidham stable enjoyed a welcome winner at Fair Grounds on Saturday, when Benjamin Trask’s Alabama Slim responded well under a finely judged ride by Mitchell Murrill.
Claimed only a couple of runs back, Alabama Slim was winning his first race for the Stidham barn (having finished second on his first start for the stable). And though he’s five now, this tough-as-teak gelding looks like he’s one to pay his way in the months to come.
And now for the week ahead – here’s a look at the entries:
Sophieshardtocatch – Race 2, Claiming $15,000
Moon Medal – Race 6, Allowance Optional Claiming $40,000
Prognosis – Race 6, Allowance Optional Claiming $40,000
