BIRDSTONE’s Stone Carver takes the 65th running of the Journal Handicap

Son of BIRDSTONE gets Black Type win in Canada

Stone Carver (BIRDSTONE) got up to win the 65th running of the Journal Handicap (Black Type) at Century Mile over the weekend for his second stakes victory.

The 5-year-old son of Gainesway’s BIRDSTONE broke alertly from the gate, remained in striking position, then took things over at the quarter-pole with light handling from jockey Rigo Sarmiento to win by open lengths. Stone Carver completed the 6F on dirt in a final time of 1:08.96.

Bred in KY by T/C Stable, LLC, Stone Carver is out of the mare Vermilion Sea (Boundary). He was purchased by Riversedge Racing at the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $35,000.
