The polar vortex may have the north east of the country in its icy grip, but the Stidham stable remains red-hot! Ouch! Just look at the two winners the stable fired out today alone.
At Fair Grounds this afternoon, Canny, owned by Feel The Thunder Stable, Alan Herman, and the Haynes Stables, got her head in front for the first time since May 2017, winning well under Shaun Bridgmohan. This daughter of Big Brown was subsequently claimed, however.
Then, over at Tampa Bay Downs, Gary Davidson’s English Laughter made it two wins from just four starts, showing great determination under a fine ride from Antonio Gallardo.
And now for the weekend.
Tomorrow at Oaklawn Park, Sunset Wish is drawn 4 of 7 in the $125,000 Martha Washington Stakes, over one mile. Winner of the Take Charge Brandi Stakes last time out, this Morning Line 9/5 shot has Joe Bravo in the saddle.
Here’s the rest of the weekend entries:
Simply Great – Race 7, Claiming $8,000
Queen of Country – Race 8, Maiden Special Weight
Honest to Goodness – Race 5, Maiden Claiming
Ask Stacy – Race 9, Pablo Morales
