Arlington: Fiscal Policy = poor investment

Email

Man - we're going crazy with the chalk at AP today. Sure, Fiscal Policy looked like the favorite in race 6, 2yo filly MSW. But 3-5 on a first-timer over AP Polytrack, where morning work times have not exactly been translating precisely into afternoon performance? Fiscal Policy pressed pace-setting Tellme All Aboutit, but it was Tellme who ran on as Fiscal raced greenly through the stretch and faltered late. $23.20 for trainer Jim Divito, jock Diego Sanchez, with Inside Deal running on for second.

Turf splits and final times in race 5 confirmed that the grass course is way more firm than good, though AP continues to call it good. David D ran right back to his near miss last time out and was easily best in this $25K maidnen-claimer.
