Arlington: Inside bias back in play?


Three Polytrack races, three inside winners, two who led all the way from post 1, neither of which looked all that logical on paper. The third winner, Flattermejim, was coming off an eight-month layoff and was a seven-race maiden winning an MSW. Without jumping to conclusions, it's a decent guess that inside paths are preferred again today. That's been the case much of this meet, and what's striking is how the trend has transcended weather. Poly supposedly fluctuates with temp and moisture, but the rail has been good on days cool and dry as well as hot and damp, like today.
