Arlington: No early betting surprises in Arlington Sprint


Figured Country Day would be favored in the $100K Arlington Sprint, which has 18 minutes to post, and so far he is. Cheif of Affairs, the 3-1 morning-line choice, is 5-1 at the moment. In turf races, bettors tend to shun experienced horses if they lack grass experience, such as Chief of Affairs. Jr's Exchange, one of two in the race for trainer Gerald Bennett, was scratched. That makes Birdie Beats Par more dangerous as the possible controlling speed.
