Hill N’Dale Farm enjoyed a nice winner today at Arlington, when Fly Nightly did the business under Declan Carroll.
Always handily positioned by the jockey, Fly Nightly was launched down the straight, kicking clear in the final furlong to win by more than two lengths. Afterwards, however, this son of The Factor was claimed out of the yard.
Before we take a look at the weekend entries, it would be remiss not to make mention of a great article in TVG today about Mike and Hilary and the fine year they’re enjoying. Here’s a snippet:
“Without a doubt it’s been something that every trainer strives for, to get up to that higher level,” Stidham said. “Definitely being involved with Godolphin has been the catalyst to take me there and then getting to go on the world stage with Mystic Guide was like this dream come true. For 40 years, you watch all this go on, you watch a lot of other trainers get to that and you think, wow. Now, it’s actually me doing it.”
