Arlington: Friday conditions - storms on way

Email

Friday conditions:
HOT. Perhaps the hottest racing day so far this meet. 90 degrees, humid. Wind southwest (cross/head) 10 mph.
Turf firm, rail 6 feet outside lane 3.
There's a massive line of storms moving through central Illinois, and Arlington is likely to get slammed by them within a couple hours. Conditions could change drastically.
Race 1 - ho-hum. Rivelli-trained 4-5 class dropper Pretty In Mink rallies four wide and easily, easily best. Final time for 6.5 furlongs slow even by low-level claiming standards, 1:19.66.
