Three wins over the past week means the Stidham barn is absolutely flying ahead of a scintillating weekend of action!
Last Sunday and on only his second start, DARRS Inc’s Kathak ran away under Jomar Torres with a tidy looking Maiden Special Weight at Monmouth Park. This 3-year-old son of First Defense certainly has a bright future ahead of him.
At Belmont Park on Thursday, the It’s All About The Girls Stable enjoyed an even more impressive victory when their Bangle Gal destroyed another nice looking Maiden Special Weight under Manuel Franco. Fast on the improve, Bangle Gal is another to keep an eye on.
Then yesterday at Belmont Park, The Last Zip broke his maiden under Joel Rosario showing a nice attitude in the process. Rick Kanter’s son of City Zip is steadily moving up the ranks.
Now for the weekend.
Missmizz faces a maximum 9 other runners in the $75,000 Honey Bee Stakes at Monmouth Park today. Drawn 7 under Jomar Torres, Missmizz is a 5-1 shot in this 5 1/2 furlong sprint on the turf.
On Sunday at Laurel Park, Tomlin is drawn 3 of 7 in the $100,000 Alma North Stakes. Ridden on this occasion by Trevor McCarthy, Tomlin is 3-1 to prevail in this tough looking 7 furlong contest.
