Arlington: Race 8 bomber


How unlikely was Angel Talk's 22-1 victory in race 8, an N1X allowance over 5.5 furlongs on Poly? Well, the Pick 4 started off with 4-1 Sarahthetiger and continued with 2-1 Pulpitarian, but after Angel Talk barely held on over second-choice Lalo's Baby Bear, six of the 10 horses in race 9 are uncovered in the Pick 4. Wow - that's a 22-1 shot getting NO play in the multi-race gimmicks. All she did was press and inherit the lead when favored Pirates Vow gave out, and wide-closing Lalo's Baby Bear simply ran out of real estate.
