What has already been an extraordinary run promises to get even better, with the Stidham stable sending out a raft of runners this weekend, potentially augmenting what seems like a gazillion winners over the past week or so already!
Last weekend saw the stable bag an amazing SEVEN winners, including FOUR stakes victories. Then, on Monday, one further win made it eight the entire Labor Day Weekend.
That’s because the winning machine Colorado Grandslam proved a smart claim last time out for owner Benjamin Trask, winning first time of asking for team Stidham at Monmouth Park under Nik Juarez.
As for this weekend, the stable’s big race entries include Breckenridge in race 8 at Arlington Saturday, the $75,000 Arlington-Washington Futurity, over seven furlongs. Mitchell Murrill takes the ride on the 6-1 shot, and they’re drawn 3 of 9.
Over at Colonial Downs, the exciting Embolden is drawn 3 of 9 in the $100,000 Jamestown Stakes, over five and a half furlongs. The Morning Line 1/1 shot has Trevor McCarthy booked.
On Sunday at Kentucky Downs, Repatriated Gem is drawn 10 of 10 in the $350,000 Fifth Third Insurance Dueling Grounds Oaks, a one and five sixteenth miles on the turf. James Graham takes the ride on the 8-1 shot.
