Another exciting weekend awaits the Stidham stable, with a couple barn favourites seeking big race glory!
Let’s start with the G3 Delaware Oaks tomorrow at Delaware Park, where Chardonnay is looking for a first slice of black type in the $300,000 race over 1 and 1/16th miles.
Jaime Rodriguez takes the mount on the filly, who’s drawn 4 of 8. A 6-1 shot on the Morning Line, Chardonnay has been in good form this season, winning twice already, including last time out at Pimlico.
Over at Churchill Downs, the wonderful Proxy is also seeking a first win in stakes company when lining up in a red-hot G2 Stephen Foster Stakes, a $750,000 race over 1 and 1/8th miles.
Like Chardonnay, Proxy has been in good form this year, winning once before putting up a string of admirable performances in tougher races. Joel Rosario takes the mount on this 9-2 shot, who’s drawn 5 of 7.
And here’s the other stable entry this weekend:
Chameleon – Race 3, Maiden Special Weight
