After a week of early mornings and mounting excitement, the summer meet at Arlington Park reaches its crescendo this Saturday with the 36th running of the Arlington Million.
Here at Picks and Ponderings, we have previews of all five stakes races Saturday at Arlington Park:
- Race 8: Bruce D. Memorial Stakes
- Race 9: Secretariat Stakes (G1)
- Race 10: Beverly D. Stakes (G1)
- Race 11: Arlington Million (G1)
- Race 12: Pucker Up Stakes (G3)
In addition to the stakes previews here, I've also highlighted a few of my favourite spot plays on the undercard over at the TwinSpires blog. I love the Million Day undercard: not only is the racing good, but it's rife with local horses and local connections. It's a chance for the country and even the world to catch a glimpse of the horses I enjoy every day I'm at the track.
At a glance, here are the stakes selections from the set of Million Day stakes articles:
