The exciting Missmizz was a fantastic winner of the $75,000 Blue Sparkler Stakes at Monmouth Park yesterday, one of three nice winners over another successful weekend for the barn!
Given a nicely judged ride by Paco Lopez, Missmizz won quite nicely in the end, putting 1 1/4 lengths between herself and the runner-up. DARRS Inc’s 3-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast appears to be still on the improve, and one thing’s for certain, Stidham will expertly place her when it’s time to follow up.
Mismizz wasn’t the only winner for the barn over the weekend! At Woodbine on Saturday, Rosebud’s Hope absolutely hosed up under Rafael Hernandez. This wonderfully consistent performer has been a great servant for owners Brent Gasaway, Alan Herman, John Adger, and Feel The Thunder Stable.
Yesterday at Arlington, Keeneasabean broke her maiden for owners Alifyfe Racing when expertly delivered by jockey Mitchell Murrill to prevail by 1 1/4 lengths. With this nice confidence booster under her belt, there’s sure to be more to come from this 3-year-old daughter of Orb.
And now to the week’s lone entry:
