Million Week 2019: Picks and Ponderings

The 2019 Arlington Million is upon us, and both at Picks and Ponderings and elsewhere, I’ve got plenty of analysis for the big day.

Here at Picks and Ponderings, I’ve got full previews of all five stakes races:

In separate episodes of Chicago Race of the Day, I preview Saturday’s 5th race, a maiden special weight, as well as discuss the Pucker Up and the Bruce D. horse-by-horse.

Joe Wulffe of The Daily Gallop also brought me on as a guest on his video podcast, Board Hitters and Bourbon.  We sat down for a chat about the Arlington Million, the Beverly D., and the Secretariat.  Watch Part 1, and Part 2.

And, if you’re looking for some broader tips on how to handicap Arlington for Million Day and beyond, don’t forget to check out this episode of How to Bet Horse Racing with Ed DeRosa, where we talked about just that.

Enjoy the Arlington Million on Saturday, and good luck!
