Hill ‘N Dale Farm’s Our Bruce made sure the Stidham stable didn’t finish the week empty handed, with a nice win at Arlington yesterday.
After a modest start, Our Bruce made good headway from the turn, eventually drawing clear of the field to win by one-and-a-half-lengths under Mitchell Murrill. This was Our Bruce’s first career victory.
His win, however, makes sure the stable starts the weekend off on a good footing, and boy, what a weekend of action it looks like being, with both One Last Shot and Sweetbaby scheduled to line up in the $65,000 Steve Morgan Memorial Stakes at Arlington tomorrow.
Both One Last Shot, ridden by Mitchell Murrill, and Sweetbaby, ridden by Christopher Emigh, are looking for their first black type victory in the one mile race on the turf. They’re both 30-1 shots on the Morning Line, and 14 are scheduled to go to post.
