Sunday, Oct. 8:
Already a multiple stakes winner, two-year-old filly AMIDST WAVES (’21 Midshipman / Troublesome) took on the boys Sunday at Keeneland in the $250,000 Indian Summer Stakes presented by Keeneland. Going off the favorite in the 10-horse field, the chestnut filly raced along the rail mid-pack before splitting rivals in the stretch, dueling inside the eight pole and just missing the victory by a nose in a photo-finish.
Originally purchased as a yearling by the racing partnership Dew Sweepers LLC, for $100,000 out of the 2022 Keeneland September Sale. The GEORGE WEAVER trainee made her first two starts for that ownership breaking her maiden second time out at Belmont Park in June. She was then acquired privately by her current owners R.A.HILL STABLE, BLACK RIDGE STABLE LLC, SWINBANK STABLES, BIG TUFF STABLES and BLACK TYPE THOROUGHBREDS for whom she has won two stakes out of three starts. Her record is now 5-3-1-0 with earnings of $240,875.
AMIDST WAVES’ yearling half-sister by Bolt d’Oro was purchased by Red Wings at this year’s Keeneland September Sale for $285,000. She is currently beginning her training at Wavertree Stables with a view to consignment at a two-year-olds-in-training sale next spring.
Best of luck to Amidst Waves and all of her connections!
