Arlington: Poly speed holding so far today

Email

Out of the clear blue sky, we've got a little speed thing going on Polytrack. Race 1 co-winner Cool Hero would not surrender early lead to closing Kinsale With Me, and in race 2, bet-off-the-board Phantom Star dueled inside all the way around in a two-turn maiden race, then held off the closer. And in race 4, Lighthouse Judge was nipped on the wire by rallying So Busted, but only just. Lighthouse Judge more a sprinter than miler, and he'd set what should have been a killing pace, and didn't stop.

Race 5, MSWs on the turf, had second-time starter Lillies So Fair bet from 8-1 morning line to 2-1 at post time, and she came through with sustained rally under Jesus Castanon to post chalky win for trainer Tom Proctor.
