Arlington: Hot and windy Thursday


All of a sudden its 89 degrees again???!!!
41 percent humidity. Strong southwest wind (cross/head in stretch) 18-30 mph
Turf "good," with turf rail 6 feet outside lane 3.

Question begged by just-completed race 1: What happened to all the horses? Nine were entered, but three were scratched. Quite a bit of scratching throughout the card.

Poly about par for the meet with those race 1 $25K maidens, specifically winner Milestonemissile, going six furlongs in 1:13 and change. Because of the wind, we will see fast fractional times today.
