Arlington: Friday conditions -- much cooler, still windy


68 degrees, 72-percent humidity
Wind west (head-wind stretch) 18-30 mph
Turf soft, turf rail 6 feet outside lane 3

More than 20 degrees cooler than on Thursday, but wind really whipping up again. With some overnight rain, the turf is down from "good" on Thursday to "soft" today. Guess quite a few people weren't happy with that, since there are five horses scratched from races 6 and 7, both carded for grass. General Charley's try to win his sixth race of this meet in race 7 got a lot easier with several early-pace rivals and one major contender, Corredor dela Isla, out of the race.
