Kirkwood Stables earns the co-bullet 1/4 time of :21 2/5 with hip 220 at Timonium

Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables sent out hip 220, a filly by GI Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver to earn the co-bullet quarter-mile time of :21 2/5. The bay, a $90,000 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling purchase by Walnut Green, is out of multiple stakes winner Wish It Were (Is It True) and is a halfsister to stakes winner Ancient Rome (Roman Ruler) and stakes placed Little Hitman (Wildcat Heir). “I knew she would be right up with the fastest horses today,” Elser said of the filly. “She’s always been a very nice filly. She’s not a really tall filly, but she’s beautifully balanced and just a very efficient mover.” Elser admitted he’s a big fan of the Timonium track. “These guys do a great job with the track,” he said. ANo matter the weather, this is always a safe surface to work on.”
