Another day, another slew of wins for the Stidham stable!
Just this afternoon, the Stidham barn booted out a couple nice winners at Laurel Park and Monmouth Park.
First up was Blowin Smoke at Monmouth Park, who broke his maiden the first time of asking for owner Thad Ackel. This three-year-old Gio Ponti gelding was delivered with a storming run down the stretch by jockey Albin Jimenez, and won with a bit in hand. Watch out for where he goes next!
Over at Laurel Park, the Animal Kingdom two-year-old filly Elsa made an absolutely barn-storming debut, running away with a nice looking maiden to win by nearly four lengths under Sheldon Russell. Owners Godolphin sure look like they’ve another nice prospect on their hands!
