Arlington: 2yo filly turfers


Just-completed race 6 might've been a decent heat. Inside Deal opened a big early lead, but first-timers Cryptocandiac, a half-sis to graded-stakes-winner Workin for Hops, and Alluring Storm, a half to G1 winner Vacare, both rallied well to make it a three-horse blanket finish. It was Inside Deal by a nose, with 'candiac another nose in front of Alluring Squall, who was wide the entire far turn. The turf is soft, and the time here will not look like much, but I would guess that these are fairly promising horses, particulary the second and third.

Overall, not much to report, with no biases apparent, and Poly-times in an average range. In upcoming race 7, General Charley seeks his sixth win of the Arlington meet. He was favored at even-money early in the betting, but Gaelic Storm took a big poke and currently is the 8-5 chalk.
