Arlington: Flying on Poly

Email

Opening-day main track seemed quick early in the card. Now, it's lightning-fast. In race 5, bet-down Catalano-trained chalk Too Wild for Words zipped past the three-quarters split in 1:08.98 on the way to a 6.5-furlong final time of 1:15.51, this in a $25K N3L claimer. And in race 7, a low-level $5K claimer, the winner, 19-1 Sharp Trick, went a sub-1:10 six furlongs. It's cool, it's been damp -- and it's a blazing-fast Polytrack.
