Trainer Dallas Stewart
has been very high on Charles Fipke’s Unbridled Forever
since she came into his barn and in Saturday’s $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes
on Road to the Derby Day
Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots she justified his optimism with a 1
½-length tally in the first leg of the local series that concludes with
the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks
on Louisiana Derby Day March 29.
“I thought she was spectacular yesterday,” said Stewart Sunday
morning when speaking outside his barn during training hours. “I also
thought that (winning rider) Robby Albarado did a great job getting her to the outside and putting her in a position to win.”
What might be next for his filly out of 2006 Kentucky Oaks winner Lemons Forever, who was also trained by Stewart?
“Probably the Fair Grounds Oaks,” said Stewart. “At least that’s the
preliminary plan right now. There are a lot of good races for
3-year-old fillies later in the spring and there’s no reason to ask her
to do too much right now.”
