Weekend update…

After the fireworks of last weekend (including, of course, Synchrony’s fine third place finish in the G1 Old Forester Turf Classic Stakes at Churchill Downs), this week has been a relatively quiet one for the stable…

…and this weekend offers much of the same, with a handful of runners at Monmouth Park over the next two days. But before we give you the weekend entries, here’s a little update on where dual graded stakes winning Synchrony could be headed next:

As per the Arlington barn notes, The Grade I $1,000,000 Arlington Million on August 11 is a target spot for Synchrony, according to trainer Mike Stidham.

“I would say we probably will [run him once] before the Million,” trainer Mike Stidham said. “He’s had three hard races off the layoff so we’re not looking to cram a bunch of races in. We’re looking for the better races and to be as good as we can. We haven’t really pinpointed anything but we’ll look over the stakes schedule.”

And here’s the weekend runners:


Monmouth Park
Last Play – Race 1, Maiden Special Weight
Huntington Drive – Race 10, Allowance Optional Claiming $20,000
Go Metro Girl – Race 12, Maiden Special Weight


Monmouth Park
Summer Sweet – Race 10, Allowance Optional Claiming $20,000
