Arlington: Alluring Squall pulls, flounders


Well, that didn't work out very well. Everythign was fine with 6-5 race 9 fave Alluring Squall into the first turn, as she tucked into a nice pocket behind the speed. But when Alluring Squall got into tight quarters coming off the clubhouse turn, she seemed to panic a bit, and basically tried to run of with jockey Eddie Perez for the next furlong-and-a-half. The filly eventually settled down a bit, but think the damage had been done, and Alluring Squall had nothing like the late punch she showed last time when taken to the rail in mid-stretch for a flat third-place finish. Winner Barbies M paid $32, scoring her second straight AP turf victory for trainer Andrew McKeever.
