The American Quarter Horse Journal, September 30, 2010 – World champion Stolis Winner takes dead aim on world champion Refrigerator’s all-time earnings record when he starts in the race named after the record holder, the $100,000 Refrigerator Handicap (G1) Saturday night at Lone Star Park.
Jerry Windham’s Stolis Winner (Stoli-Veva Jean by Runaway Winner) has earned $2,097,731 while Refrigerator earned $2,126,309. If Stolis Winner takes the $55,000 first-place check then his career earnings would rise to a new-record $2,131,611.
The 4-year-old Stolis Winner started the year with two strong efforts and then couldn’t quite get the job done in his most recent start. He started the year by qualifying for the Bank of America Sam Houston Championship Challenge (G1) and came back to take the final for his fifth career stakes win. Then he finished sixth – beaten by only a neck – in the Sam Houston Classic (G2) as the 4-5 favorite.
