Two great days of action at Fair Grounds yielded two fantastic winners for the barn, yet again underscoring the stable’s fine form!
On Saturday, Americandy, a really lovely three-year-old son of Candy Ride, broke his maiden first time of asking under Joe Bravo. Americandy was slow away, but when the penny dropped, he flew home down the stretch to win comfortably.
Signal Hill Farms sure look like they’ve an exciting prospect on their hands!
On Sunday, Cypress Point, a three-year-old daughter of Quality Road, broke her maiden the fourth time of asking in completely different fashion to Americandy, leading from start to finish before knuckling out a neck-victory under Mitchell Murrill.
Cypress Point looks nailed on to build on that victory for owners Hinkle Farms.
