Hope fired off her second stakes win of the season on Saturday, June 10th. I believe she won for her jockey, Malcolm Franklin, who was celebrating his birthday that weekend.
I thought her previous stakes win in the Swifty Sired Fillies Stakes was impressive when she won by 9 1/2 lengths, but she came back even stronger to dominate by 11 lengths in the Itoba Stakes. Her biggest challenger was No Bluff Just Hope, another talented Strong Hope filly. Go Strong Hope!
Thank you to the many friends, family, and new acquaintances that were present Saturday night to support and cheer Hope on.
One thing is for sure ,I’ve been blessed with a very special filly. She knows what she is supposed to do and she’s enjoying it. I hope you are enjoying the ride as well as we experience together the thrill of thoroughbred racing! Pictures and articles below.
