The Stidham stable is really riding a wave of success at the moment, and the barn enjoyed a fine double at Fair Grounds Saturday.
Oliver Tait’s The Zip Zip Man got the ball rolling with a nice win under Robby Albarado, overcoming a rocky start to finish with a flourish. Tough and honest, The Zip Zip Man was making a welcome return to the winner’s circle, and the victory bodes well for the year ahead.
Later on the card, Canny was given a peach of a ride by Sophie Doyle to record her fist career victory. Owned by Feel The Thunder Stable, Alan Herman and Haynes Stables, Canny, like The Zip Zip Man, looks to have an exciting year ahead of her.
