Mike Stidham is making the most of his brief Keeneland sojourn with a strong squadron of runners this weekend.
Tomorrow, he saddles an interesting and lightly raced pair in Stellaris and Partyinslowmotion, both of whom are looking to break their maidens. While on Sunday, it’s the turn of In Tall Cotton, Masquerade, Every Way and Abundantly Clear.
Earlier in the week, Jessica’s Star ran well to finish second in an allowance won stylishly by a horse that has been stakes-placed. After experiencing something of a troubled trip, Jessica’s Star flew once clear down the straight to suggest that she would have been much closer to the runaway winner given a clear passage, and Stidham’s lightly raced daughter of Magna Graduate looks sure to add to her win-tally soon.
Check in again next week for a look back on the weekend action.
