Hold onto your hats, Stidham stable fans, we’ve a busy week ahead. And the barn couldn’t be in any hotter form at present.
At Pimlico on Saturday, Dare to Dream Stable’s Starburst enjoyed his second victory to maintain his 100% career record, leading all the way to win by a neck under Charlie Marquez. This 3-year-old son of Upstart was having his first start in some ten months, and so, further improvement is expected. Keep an eye out for when he next appears.
Yesterday at Colonial Downs, Stallionaire Enterprises’ Dreaming of Gerry had a well-deserved first victory, kicking clear down the stretch to win easy under Colby Hernandez. This 3-year-old son of Liam’s Map has been knocking on the door for a while, and a cozy victory will have done his confidence no end of good.
