Arlington: First Friday


Turf firm, rail 6 feet outside lane 3.
Sunny, 82 degrees. Wind south (cross-wind) at 12 mph.

Romacaca out of race 8 is the day's biggest scratch. Not too many scratches, however.

Big action on Auto King, Reavis-trained class-dropping third-time starter in the opener. Bet to 7-5 off 4-1 morning line with heavy recent action (6 MTP now.)

Poly was slow-playing and weird yesterday, but ended up not being so anti-speed biased as it appeared partway through the card. Expecting faster times today?
