DARRS Inc and Beatson Stable’s Hardwin did it the hard way when he broke his maiden at Pimlico yesterday.
In typical Stidham fashion, Hardwin was sent straight to the lead under Mitchell Murrill, and there he stayed, just clinching the victory by a neck at the wire.
This was Hardwin’s first win in four starts, and now, with this confidence booster under his belt, he looks capable of stepping it up from here.
