Fresh off a monster Derby win at Zia Park on Wednesday, the Stidham stable has kicked off the latest winter meet at Fair Grounds in the best possible fashion, firing out three winners in two days at the Louisiana track.
Stidham knocked out a brace of wins on Thursday, starting with a fine maiden win by Pin Oak Stud’s Missive – a gorgeous two-year-old daughter by Alternation, and judging by this victory under Joe Bravo, Missive has a big future ahead of her.
One race later, Signal Hill Farms’ Highly Prized showed everybody just why he’s such a valued member of the Stidham team when running out a gutsy winner of the contest under, guess who – Joe Bravo!
Then, yesterday, Bravo did it again, helping Godolphin’s exciting Hallie Belle continue her sharp upward curve by running out a stylish winner of a nice looking allowance. This three-year-old daughter of Medaglia d’Oro looks yet another future stake race performer for connections.
