Arlington: Fairmount Power!

EmailFairmount invader Metrosmile tons the nightcap, a $10K maiden-claimer. Couldn't get through between horses at three-sixteenths pole, so Junior Alvarado drifted down to the fence, found room there, and came through full of run in the final sixteenth. Won going away for trainer James Childers. It was the 5s FP work since she'd been up here for decent run last month that sold me.

No biases on this somewhat strange day. Card interrupted briefly for some crazy wind-thunderstorms, but lucked out and nothing more than some light rain after race 4. Times about in average range, though surface may have quickened second half of the card.

Good Saturday program on tap. Hope for no more rain so the grass races stay on.
