Arlington: Equiczar rules opener, winning time quick enough

EmailFew minutes after I posted, flood of money on Equiczar, who went off and won at 3-5. Moved pretty nicely, looking nothing like the horse thumped at CD in career debut on dirt. Time for the 4.5 furlongs was 52.63 seconds, that after splits of 23.23 and 46.26. Quarter split obviously on the slow side, but the final time (top 3 finishers within a length and a half or so) suggests track faster than last Thursday's.
