After a couple of relatively quiet few weeks (especially after the barn’s world conquering exploits during the first half of the year), things rev up again this weekend, with a beloved stable stalwart gunning for more big race glory on Labor Day.
On Monday, the marvellous Pixelate goes for G3 glory in the WinStar Mint Million Stakes at Kentucky Downs.
The multiple stakes winning Pixelate (who has already earned more than half a million in prize money during his career) is gunning for another big pay day in this million dollar race.
Drawn 6 in the 11 runner field, Pixelate has the top-shelf services of Joel Rosario, and they’re a 10-1 shot to prevail in the mile turf contest.
Pixelate is one of a number of Stidham runners over the next few days. Here’s a look at the entries:
Quiet Prayer – Race 7, Maiden Claiming $12,500
Mr. Cunningham – Race 4, Maiden Special Weight
Gina – Race 9, Maiden Special Weight
Triple Tiara – Race 8, Maiden Special Weight
Ravir – Race 3, Allowance
