The marvelous Meilleur, owned by DARRS, Inc, made it two wins from two this year, when running out a wide-margin winner under Brian Pedroza at Tampa Bay Downs yesterday.
Smart out of the gates, Meilleur stayed at the head of affairs the whole way, kicking clear down the stretch to put 5 1/2 lengths between him and the next horse home. This tough gelding’s winning spree looks far from over!
As to the week ahead, tomorrow, Stidham’s Sweetbaby is one of 12 runners scheduled to line up in the $75,000 Mardi Gras Stakes. Drawn 9, and with Joe Bravo on board, Sweetbaby is a 30-1 shot in the 5 1/2 furlong sprint on the turf.
