The Stidham barn enjoyed a fine double at Arlington Park on Saturday for owners Feel the Thunder Stable, bringing our win total for the year almost to the 30 mark already.
The Feel the Thunder Stable owned Arbitrary got the ball rolling when breaking her maiden in determined fashion under an inspired Declan Carroll. Given a confident ride, Arbitrary duked it out with the runner-up down the stretch to prevail by a head. This win enhances the daughter of First Samurai’s paddock value nicely.
Two races later, the Feel the Thunder Stable owned Implication did the job in slightly easier fashion, ridden with slightly more restraint under Carroll before pouncing down the home stretch to win going away by more than two lengths. Connections have been super patient with this 5-year-old son of War Front, and it’s great to see that patience rewarded.
Here’s a look at the entries (thus far) for the week ahead:
Arrest Warrant – Race 5, Maiden Special Weight
Point Him Out – Race 3, Allowance
Pie Killer – Race 7, Starter Allowance
