Edited press release
Abigail Kawanakoa’s Staggering Stride, a $150,000 purchase at last year's Los Alamitos Equine Sale, will make her debut in a 300-yard maiden weight dash for 2-year-old fillies at Los Alamitos Racecourse.
Trained by Chris O'Dell, Staggering Stride is a daughter of 1994 champion 2-year-old Mr Jess Perry and the Grade 1-winning Tolltac mare Dinastia Toll BRZ. Consigned by Lazy E Ranch, LLC, agent for John Andreini, the filly is a half sister to champion FDD Dynasty and 2015 All American Derby (G1) winner Apollitical Blood. She is also a full sister to stakes winner and multiple Grade 1 finalist Solid Connection.
Staggering Stride prepped for her debut with two official 220-yard gate works, including a drill in :12.40, the fourth fastest of 18 at the distance on April 16. Rodrigo Aceves will ride the filly in her debut.
