Arlington: Polytrack slow; Brueggemann hot

Email

No storms have materialized, but the wind has flopped about 180 degrees, from west at the start of the day to east now.

The Polytrack is slow - not surprising given the heat and humidity. When Bank Account won a $10K N3L claimer wuth six furlongs in 1:12.23, I thought, 'Wow, that was pretty fast.' Enough said.

Bank Account, who captured race 5, trained by Roger Brueggemann, who also won with Pink Belle Girl, who led all the way in race 4, a $5K turf starter that lost the horse to beat, Fox Force Five. Both horses won first off the claim, and to many it looked like Brueggemann had a hat trick at the finish line in race 7. But no - pace-setting Disco Troop won a head bob with Brueggemann-trained Bell By The Ridge to capture an N1X Poly-sprint allowance. Soul Coaxing was best in the race, though -- bad started, significant steady going into the far turn, and he was beaten a nose and a half for win.
