Arlington: Mostly through Friday


Late posting today, but head buried in American Racing Manuals doing research. Snore.

Off the turf for second day in a row, that despite good drying Thursday. Can't blame AP for conserving grass course with Million a couple weeks away.

No biases on Poly, times in average range,  no major surprises. Except perhaps the 7-5 on 5-1 morning-line Silken Prince in race 5. Off almost a year, 3yo Ill-bred was bet early and often in Illinois MSW, and led all the way under Shane Sellers for trainer Charlie Bettis. Guess those works leapt off the page, and that this was a heavily touted comebacker.
