Arlington: Rain falling, slow turf (or not)

EmailCan't say whether race 2, the first turf of the day, was slow in final time because of slow pace, or slow-paced and slow final because of wet conditions. But in any case, even-money favorite Excelent was home with a mile in 1:39.22, which, for a $40K N3L claimer, is a slow time both in general and compared to yesterday.

Rain has come - think it might be of the passing variety, more than steady-falling. But conditions have changed, and may change more.
